Kobe 9 KRM EXT "Challenge Red" 12.19.14

The Kobe 9 continues to stretch the imagination, taking its heightened innovation from the court to the community with a Mamba-centric lifestyle feel.

The latest Kobe 9 EXT is meant to embody the aesthetic and attitude of the venomous Red Viper. Exuding a serpent-like appearance, the upper is styled in Challenge Red KRM that forms compression molded TPU triangles, mimicking the viper’s vibrant pointy scales. Premium Challenge Red leather on the heel and collar also features a scaly snake-inspired pattern and tonal stitching. Additionally, a black midsole produces a striking juxtaposition that contours chrome inlays to shine off the court.

The Kobe IX EXT "Challenge Red" ($350) drops Friday December 19th. Sizes 8-13.
