Kobe Bryant has helped U.S.A. Basketball win back-to-back gold medals at the last two Olympic Games, and now his new signature sneaker gets an alternate American makeup. With the 4th of July in sight, we get a preview from @billy_boehm of the Nike Kobe 9 EM “Independence Day”, a red, white and blue rendition of the original low top. This Nike Kobe 9 EM is printed with horizontal zig-zags in vivid U.S. tones. A silver Swoosh, black tongue and midsole, and an ice blue outsole finish of these fireworks, which are slotted to drop at the end of June. Give your take in the feedback space below, and keep shooting to Nice Kicks for future release information.
