Kobe 9 EM “Philippines”

I love it when sneakers have a wicked concept fueled by an idea, inspiration, and back story. Not only does all those attributes make the shoe visually appealing, but it gives “life” and meaning to the shoe as well.

To most people, these are just “another shoe,” but to a few people like myself, these are an amazing tribute to a blue collar country with a passion and love for the game of Basketball.
