The Masterpiece has finally arrived! The long anticipated public debut of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Masterpiece” will take place this Saturday, February 8th. The Kobe Prelude Pack paved the way on the road to the Masterpiece, the first Nike Flyknit basketball shoe ever released. Check out more info and store details below.
Designed with Kobe’s tech insights and design inspirations, the Kobe 9 Elite features three key technologies: Nike Flyknit, Flywire and Lunarlon, giving the shoe superior lightweight performance. The innovative design enhances the foot’s natural movements while providing Kobe with strength, durability and speed, plus all the benefits of natural motion where he needs it most. Reverting back to a higher cut for the first time since his third signature shoe in 2007, the Kobe 9 Elite has the feel of a low-top with the support of a mid-top. The carbon fiber heel counter provides strong and lightweight lateral stability when moving from side to side, while the heel remains stable.
