The Kobe 9 EM “Court Purple” picks up where the Kobe 9 Elite “Hero” left off — pop art-inspired color stripe print in turquoise, orange and black matched up with a Hornets turquoise and purple shell. Very light grey tread tempers the mix. Engineered mesh here, folks, but at a glance you could mistake it for Flyknit. Goes to show how intricately Flyknit can be crafted.
