Numerous models throughout NIKE's prodigious Kobe line display a Black Mamba-themed makeup, however, few have ever reached this extent. The latest release of the Kobe IX silhouette reinvents the performance sneaker as a lifestyle model, adding a naturally-colored snakeskin-textured leather throughout the upper. This premium addition is complemented by grainy black leather panels seen amongst the tongue and ankle collar. The Swoosh logos amidst the side panels are also black, accenting the Lunarlon-cushioned midsole and laces. The midsole unit includes reflective chrome plates, while the outsole is translucent. This quickstrike model is available now for email order at the New KITH Shop.
