STRIKE WITH PRECISION
The Kobe IX Elite Men's Basketball Shoe features the latest Nike Flyknit construction for strength, breathability and support, plus flexible cushioning designed to win championships.
STRONG, LIGHTWEIGHT SUPPORT
The virtually seamless, formfitting Flyknit upper is woven more openly in areas that need greater breathability and tighter in areas that demand more strength and support. A new transparent yarn gives it a stronger, breathable, mesh-like texture and allows a look inside the shoe.
Lunarlon cushioning delivers soft yet responsive shock absorption. It features new multidirectional flex grooves that allow your toes to spread naturally for a more powerful first step.
A visible Nike Zoom unit in the heel provides responsive, low-profile cushioning from tip-off to final buzzer.
