Share This Page: Kobe 9 High "Challenge Red" After a wild week for Kobe Bryant, which saw him pass MJ to move into third for most points scored in NBA history, he has a new Kobe 9 high releasing Saturday, December 20, that looks to be inspired by the Yeezy II from the colorway to the design. The crimson upper takes center stage with a mix of faux snakeskin wrapped around the ankle and pyramidal spikes on the toebox. Black and chrome on the midsole and outsole set these premium sneakers apart. Kobe's signature mamba snake logo can be found on tongue as well as the midsole of the heel.
