As Black History Month approaches, most sneaker brands have already showcased their latest – except for the Kobe 9 Elite. Of course, this is to be expected with high demand – and so to build even more anticipation, they’re notorious for circulating photos last. Another detail we’ve noticed, is how their colorways are sporting a black and white color scheme with a lace jewel pattern – perhaps an indication of what’s to come? we’ll have to wait and see with future models. Also, rumors of a discontinued Kobe 9 are circulating the web, but no official statements have been released. Moreover, the Kobe Xs – a hot commodity we’re all eagerly anticipating – is set for a February 2015 release. The Kobe 9 Elite will hit shelves on January 19, 2015 at a retail price of $250 dollars. Below, let us know here at Snkrbst.com your thoughts and comments.
