The latest edition of Kobe Bryant's signature shoe series, the Kobe 9 Elite, has been unveiled, and it looks like the Black Mamba will go with a high-top look.
Nike Basketball and Kobe Bryant bucked the trend with a low-top shoe for the Kobe 8's, but now it appears they're utilizing a more traditional, yet extremely unique, design with the 9 Elite.
Here's a video showing all angles of the sneakers from Bleacher Report's Lance Fresh:
