Nike is a brand unlike any and has come up with one amazing design after another. On Saturday, February 8, 2014, Nike Basketball Shoes made history again with its newest brainstorm product, Kobe 9 Elite. The range will be available in three different colorways, and simply looks stunning. Nike will also offer a low top version of the shoe with more casual undertones. The three different color combinations are a tribute to Kobe Bryant’s commitment to Los Angeles’s life, art and culture.
Nike Kobe was designed by the elite Eric Avar, who wanted his creation to have more natural mobility, buckets of strength and eternal durability. Made specifically for the hard-core athlete, Nike Kobe 9 Elite astonishes all with its looks and functionality. Kobe 9 elite changes the whole package including the visual and the performance, with this new range of basketball shoes which will incorporate Nike’s leading technologies like Nike Flyknit, Flywire and Lunarlon. It is the lightest range of shoes that Nike has ever come up with and this property provides a wide range of motion and more speed.
The three aspects of Bryant’s motivation inspire the three different colorways of the Nike Kobe. They are impressive performance shoes and have a great deal of the artist imprinted in them. The first colorway named the “Inspiration” is a tribute to Los Angeles, which Bryant considers as his home. The lights, the lush greenery and the star speckled skies and his team, the Lakers, all led to this Nike Kobe’s bursts of color at random. Bryant is scheduled to wear Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Inspiration” in his first game back.Release day for “Inspiration” was March 1, 2014.
“Perspective” pays respect to Pablo Picasso’s blue period between 1901 to 1904 when his paintings were done mostly in different shades of blue and blue-green. Bryant wanted the vibrant shades as his inspiration in his craft. “Perspective” will release on March 8, 2014. The astounding works of Michelangelo inspire the “Detail” range. The Italian Renaissance artist who sculpted the Statue of David’ and painted the frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, is one of the greatest sources of inspiration and awe to artists of all generations. His work continues to amaze and inspire because of his love and attention to the tiniest of details. Bryant was stimulated by this detail-oriented vivid form of art and has been able to demonstrate his expertise in all of his games. Both Michelangelo and Bryant can be seen to have influenced the looks of Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Detail” colorway.
Nike has come up with a remarkable shoe range that will rise to new heights of popularity, not only with the basketball players, but also with anyone looking for a sleek, comfortable and great pair of sports shoes. As for now, the world is waiting expectantlyfor the launch so they could go ahead and get a pair of their own.
