The Kobe 9 Elite Premium “What The” is a limited edition shoe that incorporates previous Kobe 9 colorways into its unique design. The “What The” colorway has always had a lot of hype surrounding the design, so it’s no surprise sneakerheads will be looking to cop this pair.
The Nike Kobe 9 Elite “What The Kobe” is a colorful sneaker with the perfect amount of everything. The sneaker is made up of a white base with a multicolored medley on the flyknit upper, inner lining, ankle, and tongue. Kobe’s logo, the Sheath, is emblazoned on the tongue, and a bright polychromatic melange is found in the inner collar of the shoe. The loud design is finished off with reflective tonal graphics on the ankle, black panels, and a speckled white sole. The highly anticipated shoe has an ostentatious mix-and-match aesthetic that alludes to the colorways of previous versions of the Kobe 9 Elite silhouette.
