We’ve scarcely seen a glimpse (and another today) of the shoe — indeed, we have next to no information about it — and already our overseas brethren are preparing for their first crack at it. The Nike Kobe 9 Elite Influence release date is set for tomorrow, April 1, in Europe.
The latest Kobe 9 Elite to sport an art-styled print, the shoe’s teal-and-volt Flyknit upper, complete with orange toe, is starkly contrasted by a multicolored pattern on the overlays that mixes pinks, greens, yellows and black, while carbon fiber inlays near the sole round out the palette.
Whether or not these will actually make it to the US is still a matter for debate, but a man can hope, can’t he? Stay tuned for updates as they develop — especially of the When’s it dropping in the US? variety — and check out the Foot Locker EU Twitter account for that purchase link tomorrow, at 9am CET.
