    In an emotionally charged tribute to basketball legend Kobe Bryant, Nike is set to extend its commemorative "Halo" series with the re-introduction of the Kobe 9 model in 2024. This move follows the successful launch of the Kobe 8 Protro “Halo” in August, a release that coincided with Bryant’s birthday and significantly marked the commencement of the Kobe Brand tradition.

    The upcoming 2024 series will witness the return of the high-performance Kobe 9 Elite, notable for being the first basketball shoe featuring Flyknit technology, alongside the more accessible EM edition, known for its lightweight Engineered Mesh. Both iterations will be released in an all-white "Halo" colorway, continuing the heavenly-themed homage to Bryant.

    The focus of the Kobe Brand remains on the Kobe 8 Protro and Kobe 4 Protro, with these models already enjoying substantial traction within the NBA circles. The reintroduction of the Kobe 9 “Halo” is expected to reinforce the brand's influence in the basketball sphere, a testament to the enduring legacy of Bryant’s contribution to the sport and sneaker culture.

    While the release strategy for the Kobe 9 “Halo” series remains under wraps, likely, the next-in-series will again take place on August 24th.

    Enjoy a projected look at the mock-ups below by Info via zSneakerheadz and Sneaker Files, and expect the first visuals to appear early in the new year.
