Nike Kobe Bryant

Nike have just unveiled the much-anticipated KOBE 9 Elite shoe at an event held at The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles. The Flyknit KOBE 9 Elite redefines the aesthetics and performance of a basketball shoe, and was designed according to Nike’s “Nature Amplified” design ethos, which fueled by scientific data and the insight of athletes, focuses on designing for the body in motion.

“We are just scratching the surface of the potential of Nike Flyknit to transform the way we design shoes to meet athletes’ needs,” said Mark Parker, President & CEO of NIKE, Inc. “The Kobe 9 redefines the basketball shoe by combining power, strength, and flexibility with lightweight materials and a whole new method of manufacturing.”

They probably won’t make you better at basketball, but they look really really good.
