Share This Page: Nike Kobe 9 EM - Game Royal The Nike Kobe 9 EM - Game Royal is being called the Brazil colorway of the Kobe signature kick, and no wonder! It's hard to deny the World Cup influence on this comfortable basketball sneaker with bright blues and greens running through the engineered mesh upper. The upper features a variety of wild patterns like squiggles, spots and stripes in a mix of volt green, turquoise and electric blue, which is also found on the midsole. Bright pink peeks out from underneath the mesh and shows up on Kobe's signature on the heel. A volt green outsole completes the energetic, bombastic look of this sneaker. These drop Thursday, June 19, at $160 online and in select City Gear locations. Check with your local City Gear to find out if they'll have these in stock and how you can get yours.
