Kobe Bryant has looked at Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan as “mentors” throughout his career. Therefore, this shouldn’t be to no surprise that Bryant and Nike will pay tribute to the two MJs with special edition colorways.
What to expect each model to look like is unknown, but as far as the Michael Jackson model they’ll probably pay tribute to Jackson’s trademark White socks and Black shoes. For the Air Jordan 3 inspired model, expect to see the elephant print detailed through the entire silhouette.
Let us know what you think of both upcoming Nike Kobe 9 Elite inspired models, as well as what you think they’ll look like in the comments. Keep it locked to Sneaker Bar for more updates on both Nike Kobe 9 Elite models as it develops.
