As part of the EXT lineup, which already dropped a mid-profile 9 with the same reptilian theme, the Nike Kobe 9 High “Snakeskin” is all about maintaining that lifestyle vibe. Free of the usual performance materials typically used on 9s, like Flyknit and Engineered Mesh, the sneakers are decked out in a luxe snakeskin-embossed upper. Contrasting black leather takes overs the ankle collar, heel, and tongue, while chrome accents add some pop to the shank.

Look for the sneakers to drop this Saturday, November 1, through select Nike Sportswear stockists like Ubiq in Philly. Box price is set at $250.
