Kobe 9 is getting a upgrade from the Fly knit that this model previously sport through out the year of 2014, to a leather outer look. While looking at this sneaker at first glance I thought this Kobe was more of a boxing shoe then basketball shoe, because of the leather look and the metallic side panels. When I take a closer look at the details of the sneaker I see that Kobe reintroduced us to the Kobe 6, reptilian design and using it on the Kobe 9. In my personal opinion I like the "Black Mamba" 9 because the "Red October" 9 colorway is getting played out. Which one would you pick.
