Not to put a damper on your holiday season, but Nike just announced they were delaying the release of the Kobe 9 Elite "What The". Good news is they won't be delayed for that long at all.

Word has just come down from the Swoosh that the Nike Kobe 9 Elite "What The" will now release on January 11, one day after they were originally scheduled for. Nike's been prone to pushing back releases in recent memory, but fortunately for everyone this is just a minor delay. The Kobe 9 Elite "What The" sticks to the formula from years past and incorporates colorways and design elements from previous releases. Nike hit this version with a multicolor Flyknit upper, reflective graphics, speckled midsole, and a special print on the inner collar.

Check out the detailed pictures of the Kobe 9 Elite "What The", and let is know if you'll wait the extra day to pick them up.
