Although the Black Mamba missed a majority of the NBA season suffering from injuries, that didn’t keep his signature sneakers on the bench. The Nike Kobe 9 EM in hyper cobalt is the latest colorway to euro-step out of Beaverton. The engineered mesh upper will ensure that your feet can air out after you’re done kicking ass on the court, and the in-your-face palette and geometric pattern will make sure that everyone sees you doing so. A gold Nike swoosh adds a championship pop and an icy outsole provides a cool finish to match the vibrant blue hue.
