Nike Basketball has posted a new commercial on their Youtube page featuring the Nike Kobe 9 Elite on Tuesday. The animated commercial features the official debut colorway of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite - called the "Masterpiece" - being created with some help from a Flyknit-covered black mamba snake.
Kobe Bryant's new signature shoe is a dramatic departure from his previous efforts with Nike, opting to go for a high-cut model after years of being at the forefront of the low-cut basketball shoe movement. The key technology found in the Kobe 9 Elite is Flyknit as it makes its debut on a basketball court. Flywire and Lunarlon have been used in previous Kobe shoes before and also comes with a carbon fiber heel counter.
While the "Masterpiece" is technically the official debut of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite, two special edition colorways launched previously in limited quantities and in only a few select locations.
The Nike Kobe 9 Elite "Masterpiece" will be available on February 8 for $250.00 a pair at Nike.com and select Nike Basketball retailers. Stay tuned for more release information as it becomes available.
