Nike unveils the Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM utilizing the Flyknit technology in place of the Engineered Mesh first seen on the original Kobe 9 Elite Low. When Nike first introduced the lowtop version of the Kobe 9 Elite, which was the first basketball performance sneaker to use Flyknit technology, the sneaker substituted a Flyknit upper for a mesh build. However, Nike returns with a second rendition of the lowtop offering the Flyknit silhouette in four colorways. As of now, the new Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM sneakers are rumored to be available only at Nike Stadium Milano and Excelsior in Milan and in limited supply.
