As the regular season draws to a close, the weak are separated from the strong and the good from the Elite. As we move into the playoffs, Nike and Kobe's vision focuses on excellence; offering only the best for the best. Using premium materials, advanced construction techniques, and Kobe-defined specifications and insights, the Kobe 9 Elite Team is second to none. Built with Flyknit, carbon fiber, Dynamic Flywire, and set atop Lunarlon, the Kobe 9 is equally lightweight and powerful, natural and responsive, to allow for a more comfortable fit while also providing the lock-down Kobe needs on the court. Along with the LeBron 11 and the KD VI, these three models make up the Nike Basketball Elite Team Collection slated for an April 11 release at Nike.com and select locations globally.
Release Date: April 11, 2014 (Friday)
