Nike is set to launch the "Brave Blue" edition of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite, featuring a colorway inspired by the late Dr. Jerry Buss, the legendary Lakers owner who enjoyed a reputation as an expert poker player. Dr. Buss was known to sport a blue jacket while at sitting at the tables, and the color is reflected in the shoe's Flyknit infused upper, with complementary hits of teal at the Flyknit cables and reflective silver at the Swoosh. Horizontal rows of red stitch detailing at the back, along with faux carbon fiber black paneling above the stark white outsole, complete the look. The Nike Kobe 9 Elite "Brave Blue" launches October 18th.
