It's only right that we close the year with one of the most hyped colorways from 2014.

The lifestyle iteration of the Nike Kobe 9 is the latest sneaker to get hit with the all-red treatment. Built with snakeskin paneling and a raised geometric pattern on its upper, the Kobe 9s, officially labeled as "Challenge Red," appear to take a page out of the Air Yeezy II, including the "Red October" colorway. Breaking the Yeezy vibe is a contrasting black Lunarlon sole and chrome shanks.

Watch for these new Kobes to drop this Friday, December 19, through Nike Store and select NSW stockists. Make sure to set aside $275 if you want to lock down a pair.
