Here’s an early look at the Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Draft Day”, created to pay tribute to Kobe’s entry into the NBA. Many of you are probably wondering, why blue and purple instead of purple and gold? The answer is simple, Kobe Bryant was originally selected by the Charlotte Hornets during the 1996-97 NBA draft, and believe it or not, as the 13th pick. Unfortunately for the Hornets, they made the unwise decision of trading Kobe to the Los Angeles Lakers for aging center Vlade Divac. The rest as they say, is history.

The Kobe 9 “Draft Day features the usual Flyknit upper, complemented with turquoise accents and matching laces, as well as purple graphics. There’s no official release date as of yet, but stay tuned for an update shortly.
