It's about time. The Nike Kobe 9 Elite will be releasing in a Lakers colorway dubbed the "Showtime", on April 12th, alongside Nike's Elite Team Series.
We saw Phoenix Suns forward, PJ Tucker, lace up the purple and gold high-tops not long ago and now we have a detailed look at the Lakers themed Kobe 9 Elite. Purple and yellow mesh together on the flyknit construction, which features volt at the ankle collar and a black carbon fiber at the midsole. A neutral grey outsole supports the vibrantly decorated Kobe 9.

The performance standard of the KOBE 9 Elite Team is second to none. Originally launched at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles last December, the KOBE 9 Elite Team represents Bryant’s most provocative shoe to date. As the first Nike Basketball shoe featuring Flyknit, the KOBE 9 Elite Team maximizes innovation with Lunarlon, Dynamic Flywire and carbon fiber throughout. Its ultra-lightweight design enables natural motion, while providing the lockdown and responsiveness Bryant requires.
