Black, White and Red All Over: The Kobe IX EM
For quite some time, Kobe fans have been hoping for a low-top version of his signature 9 sneaker. Their wish is Nike's command - and since the debut of the Kobe IX EM, it's been a big hit for anyone that prefers low-profile kicks.
Now, his ninth signature shoe is releasing in a simplistic colorway that's aggressive but also unassuming. Unlike previous editions of this style, it's not based on any particular them - it's just a good design and even better aesthetics. The same ultra lightweight and breathable Engineered Mesh upper in jet black keeps your feet cool and comfortable, while the Lunarlon midsole offers a cushioned and hyper-responsive feel. Meanwhile, Laser Crimson hits the Flywire and collar lining to brighten things up.
How do these compare to the flashy "Easter" and "Bruce Lee" colorways?
