Ladies and gentleman, the Nike Kobe 9 Elite "Masterpiece." Mark Parker, CEO of Nike, Eric Avar, the designer, and Kobe Bryant, the Black Mamba, were all present for the official unveiling of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite.
The super high-top sneaker features Nike Flyknit, Flywire, and Lunarlon. Parker said of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite, "There's 50% less waste than a traditional basketball shoe." This is due to the Flyknit construction, which allows the high top to have a low top feel, which is something Kobe desperately wanted for his 9th signature.
