The Nike Kobe 9 EM ‘Court Purple Camo’ quite literally looks like a Bill Cosby sweater. And that’s not a bad thing, as the mix of Court Purple, Black, Atomic Mango, and Turquoise make for an attractive design. This version of the shoe actually seems like a unification of Kobe Bryant’s Charlotte Hornets heritage mixed with a bit of L.A. Lakers gold to accent his hardwood history. It’s one of the strongest colorways ever in Kobe’s signature shoe history.

The newest color of the Kobe 9 features a distinct camouflage design combined with a pop art-influenced expression on the Engineered Mesh upper. Court Purple adorns the midsole next to the injected nylon heel clip and Nike Lunarlon delivers an ultra-soft, responsive ride. Releases May 17 on Nike.com (8am EDT/5am PDT).
