Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Perspective”

The Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Perspective” is inspired by Pablo Picasso’s “Blue Period,” an era that spanned from 1901-1904 when the Spanish cubist painter’s work was inspired by shades of blue and blue-green. Similar to Picasso’s contributions to art history, are Kobe Bryant’s illustrious career and contributions to NBA history. Pablo Picasso was versatile beyond painting with his sculpting, ceramics and printmaking while Bryant has shown versatility throughout his career as once an athletic firework of a guard, to who could now play the role of a more wise and methodical small forward.

Making waves in the sneaker community since its announcement, the Nike Kobe 9 Elite is now available in this beautiful colorway, and if previous releases are any indication, you should snag these while they’re still on shelves.

Available in stores and online Saturday. Check out Release Locator for stores.
