Officially known as the “Hyper Grape”, the new Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low took on the name “Michael Jackson” since the late King of Pop was one of the original inspiration behind the design. With its combination of Flyknit upper and Flywire dynamic fit, the new Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low is as formidable on the court as its high-top counterpart. Featuring a moonscape imprint underneath a translucent outsole, an homage to Jackson’s “Moonwalk” dance move, this low version of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite is an option what many b-ballers are looking for. The Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low “Hyper Grape/Michael Jackson” will be available at select Nike Basketball retailers starting on Saturday, July 12th.
