Nike Kobe 9 Elite – “The Art of Light, Strong, and Fast” | Event Recap

By - January 28th, 2014

We’ve all seen the images before – a bullet through an apple captured by high-speed camera. But how do you translate that into an actually display? With a series of “gates” and an abundance of Flyknit “strings”, Nike Basketball realized that quintessential photo into an exhibit for the official launch of Nike Kobe 9 Elite. The special presentation took place over the weekend at the historical Moynihan Station in New York City, just across the street Madison Square Garden. Hosted by Kobe Bryant, who was in town for a Los Angeles Lakers‘ game against the New York Knicks, the exhibit showcased not just the Nike Kobe 9 Elite but an up-close look at the colorways of Kobe 9 Elite “Inspiration”, Kobe 9 Elite “Perspective”, and Kobe 9 Elite “Detail”. The first Flyknit design for Nike Basketball, the Kobe 9 Elite and all of its variations will be available starting on February 8th with the “Inspiration”, “Perspective”, and “Detail” colorways coming in March of this year.
