In addition to the Nike LeBron 11 Elite Gold Edition, Nike has engineered a special playoff-worthy Elite Gold iteration of the Nike Kobe 9. The Kobe 9 Elite was designed by Eric Avar with direct input from the Mamba himself, resulting in a provocatively designed shoe featuring Flyknit construction — a first for a Nike basketball shoe — with Lunarlon cushioning and dynamic Flywire to maximize innovation. This Elite Gold version further pushes the design envelope, sporting a white upper with gray, black and gold details throughout for a striking art deco look. The Nike Kobe 9 Elite Gold is scheduled to launch June 6th.
