Yesterday we brought you another look at the Nike Kobe 9 Philippines, along with a few words on the visual inspiration for each of the shoe’s prominent features, all of which tie back to Filipino culture in some way.
Well good news abounds today for the visual learners among you. Website Locker Room Legends has compiled a series of sketches and CAD images of the shoe, all set alongside text and images that illustrate what exactly inspired each various portion of the shoe.
There’s the jeepney, of course, a popular conveyance in the Philippines that lends the shoe its chrome accents. And don’t forget the unique pattern of the upper, informed by the banig bed mat. But now I’m just reading the pictures to you. So head below and check out the whole series yourself; it’s well worth the look-over.
