Nike designer Eric Avar changed the game with the introduction of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite, a towering silhouette that utilized Flyknit technology in a performance basketball shoe for the first time. To commemorate the unprecedented launch, Nike Basketball's design team has produced the Nike Kobe 9 Elite "What The," featuring a mashup of previous Nike Kobe 9 Elites. The striking aesthetic highlights a multicolor Flyknit upper with reflective tonal graphics, neon speckled midsole, and a print mélange on the inner collar. Expect the kicks to launch through select Nike retailers and online beginning January 10, 2015.
