Although NIKE's prides themselves on creating the most high-performance footwear available in the market today, they also cater to those that do not put their feet through high-intensity situations. Designed for fans of the basketball silhouettes, as well as fashion, NIKE delivers a lifestyle version of the Kobe 9. Featuring a mid-cut, the NIKE Kobe 9 Mid EXT is completely wrapped in a black snakeskin leather, inspired by the namesake athlete's play-style/alter-ego - the Black Mamba. 3M lies beneath the snakeskin upper, acting as a stealthy design element. Chrome plates adorn the rear black midsole, while gum is used for the outsole. Black laces and a black leather lining finish this venomous model. The NIKE Kobe 9 Mid EXT - "Snakeskin" is available now for email order at Kith Brooklyn.
