    Kobe Elite 9 Flyknits are about to make me come out of retirement and hoop again.

    Yeah, I'd say so. Missed my chance at them from NDC too and I'm pissed. Hoping for a restock in a color that isn't bright red.

    Damn, when did Kobe go in on that sleeve? Last I remember seeing it, it was just the crown tat.

    Is it for certain there won't be low top Kobe 9's? Might have to order a third pair of 8s before the switch to 9's, anyone know what date it's scheduled for?

    Kobe wearing the hi-tops. I am really liking these shoes though especially that flyknit colorway and not just for the court.

    Ummmm... I know this is a Nike thread.

    But there seems to be a lot of ex Niketalk convicts on here. Therefore.

    I just bought these for $50. Bestbuds gives you 50% off and free shipping on Puma.com. Add on your ebates 9% rebate and that takes care of tax too.

    http://www.shop.puma.com/Future-Dis...pna355131,en_US,pd.html&q=disck#!i=2&color=01

    They are the Puma Disc Blaze's that were a cult classic for the sneakerheads. $140 regular price was a no go but $50 is a definite yes.

    I like the look of the masterpieces, but these pics with kobe kinda negates it. look really bulky around the ankles.

    I think it's the colorways that is misleading, the grey part of the tongue looks puffy and huge due to the black back and socks.

    Just the flyknit how or sockliner?

    What is interesting is that the prints they can accomplish with the flyknit upper, the designs becomes easier as they can just easily program it it'll be like printing on paper, no other materials needed like any other shoes. Imagine the custom design possibilities. Pretty awesome I think.

    Kunk hates Kobe though but his kid might ask him to buy 3 pairs for him though.

    That flyknit close-up pics don't look like they're strong enough to support competitive play on the court!

    Trust me, they are pretty strong. Kobe and especially Nike would not let Kobe play in a shoe that could end his career especially at his age and coming back from an achilles injury.

    No love for the taxis jet? Those were my dream shoes back in the day. But yes, gamma blue is just a terrible colorway.

    Really curious to see kobe 9 lows in that masterpiece colorway.


    :lol:
