Nike is going all out this year in terms of promoting Kobe Bryant’s new shoe, the Kobe 9 Elite. Not only are Bryant’s new signature shoes getting a lot of exposure, but there’s been quite a few different colorways announced over the past few months.
One colorway that will be released in the near future is a Michael Jackson-inspired version of the Kobe 9 according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN:
Kobe said there is a Michael Jackson-inspired Kobe 9 to come as well as an elephant print Air Jordan III-inspired color way also
