For over 18 years now, Kobe has bled purple and gold. The five championships during his illustrious career in Los Angeles reflect his commitment. Utilizing a unique take on the Lakers traditional colors, the Kobe 9 Elite ‘Inspiration’ colorway will be worn by Bryant upon his return to the court.
The Kobe 9 Elite features three key technologies: Flyknit, Flywire and Lunarlon, giving the shoe superior lightweight performance. Designer Eric Avar’s goal was to enhance the foot’s natural movements while providing strength, durability and speed.
