Kobe Bryant's kicks have quietly amassed quite the cache of cool in the sneaker community. The shoe has dropped several different colorways in the past weeks and hopefully this new color will whet your whistle. The Nike Kobe 9 EM has just been released in a 'Dusty Cactus.'

For this version of his ninth Nike we are given a bright blueish hue known as dusty cactus and it definitely perks the silhouette up a bit. Based on build alone this one is easy to love however the red, black and white accents don't hurt at all. On a more personal note the tongue tag reads 'Black Mamba' just in case you forgot that this is Mr. Bryant's shoe.

These are currently out and if you are hunting them down they can be ordered at Footaction.
