There is great news on the horizon for fans of the Kobe IX, the “Christmas” Kobe IX Elite is making its return.
at this early juncture, there are no available images of the upcoming sneaker, but the 2024 iteration should be a faithful recreation of its 2014 progenitor. This means we should se a Kobe IX Elite with a red and white woven upper with black FlyWire cables. Black Swooshes adorn the lateral and medial sides , with a Kobe logo at home on the red tongue.
On the rear heel read “NINTH”’with 9 stripes underneath that not only coincides with the model number but is also representative of the Achilles injury that Bryant suffered.
Underneath resides a red and white patterned midsole and a marbled rubber outsole.
As it currently stands, the “Christmas” Nike Kobe IX Elite is planned to begin its sophomore retail journey next Holiday season.
