A few weeks back, we got our first look at the Kobe 9 KRM EXT "Black Mamba" continuing a solid run for Kobe's latest signature shoe. With the release date just a few short days away, Nike is here to give us a detailed look.
With the Kobe 10's looming, it may feel like overkill to drop yet another version of the Kobe 9, but with colorways like this we fully endorse it. Nike kicked off the Kobe 9 KRM EXT with a "University Red" colorway, which was actually worn on court by the Trail Blazers Wesley Matthews. This time around, Nike toned it down going with an all-black look through the compression upper, which features a scales pattern to represent the Mamba's nickname. Nike gave the shoes a little more pop by adding in chrome inlays and accents though the heel counter, and Kobe logo on the tongue.
