KOBE SIGNATURE SHOE, NOT KOBE 9
It was rumored that these images were the Kobe 9 sneaker we have all been waiting to see, and I can see why we would think that. It looks like an upgraded version of Kobe shoe with hyperfuse and the over all shape is similar to Kobe Sneakers in the recent past (Kobe 6-8) since the overall style doesnt change much. It turns out that these are not the Kobe 9s from what we are told and are possibly a different signature shoe for Kobe. Lebron has his Soldier series, maybe this is a spin off for Kobe?
