The Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM show was recently released at the Salone del Mobile event in Milan. With snake-scale inspired details and reflective shoelaces for anyone who loves going for those midnight runs, these kicks were made for the fashionable, sporty type.

The shoes come complete with the Nike swoosh, although this time it's reflective, just like the laces. A few extra pieces of technology have been added to this design, with wiring that allows the shoe to expand and contract depending on the angle of the foot. Considering how the foot expands from heating while running, this type of technology should help with the overall blood flow when partaking in strenuous exercise.
