AIR JORDAN 9 RETRO "KOBE"
This size is currently sold out
Color: White / Concord - Tour Yellow
When Kobe Bryant was shopping for a new shoe deal in 2002 Jordan Brand made an Air Jordan 9 PE for him in hopes of luring him to the Jumpman. The Black Mamba never wore the shoe and eventually signed with Nike, but now in honor of Bryant's retirement Jordan Brand is finally making the Air Jordan 9 Retro "Kobe" available to the public.
The familiar silhouette rocks a Lakers theme, accenting its white premium leather upper with patent leather overlays in Concord with Tour Yellow branding on the tongue and heel. The big deviation from the original sample is MJ's number 23 on the heel instead of Kobe's 8. Chrome eyelets add some bling, and a white and Concord sole unit supplies the base.
Available in men's size 7.5-15
