It looks like this colorful, and so far pretty elusive, Kobe 9 is a Philippines pair (Check the banig graphic across the upper). Before you start getting all worried about them never showing up in the states due to that designation, do remember that last years’ Nike Kobe 8 PP pairs did eventually hit big box stores. Hopefully this version with its colorful upper will do the same, but we’re not making any promises yet.

It appears that the best Nike Kobe 9 EM Philippines has ties to the Philippines. The design pays tribute to the Philippines’ iconic mode of transport, the jeepney as well as painted lines and floors of local barangay courts inform the graphic elements and color of the upper. A sketch of the “tsinelas” is integrated into the translucent outsole and serves as a wink at how much Filipinos love the game of basketball.
