Hot off of the release of the Kobe 9 Elite Low “Beethoven," Nike brings yet another Kobe end-of-summer release. The Kobe 9 Mid EXT pays homage to Bryant’s moniker “The Black Mamba” with a blacked-out premium snakeskin leather upper paired with light brown gum soles. nike-kobe-9-mid-ext-4

The Kobe 9 Mid EXT will be available over via the Nike online shop on August 23rd in very limited quantities. Save your pennies because these babies are ringing in with a $225 price tag. Check out detailed images after the jump.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of the brown gum soles. So, this'll probably be a "Can" for me. What about you? Will you keep?
