The Nike Kobe 9 Elite XDR "Strategy" is a special variation of NBA legend Kobe Bryant's ninth signature sneaker designed specifically for outdoor use. This is achieved by using a more durable rubber to construct the outsole. The high-cut upper remains the same and is constructed of Flyknit with synthetic overlays. Notches stitched up the ankle collar are inspired by the stitches Kobe received after surgery for an Achilles injury he suffered the previous season. Lunarlon cushioning and a carbon fiber heel complete the design. This militaristic colorway of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite XDR fuses olive green and bright orange across the upper. A camouflage-like pattern covers the tongue and portions of the ankle collar. Contrasting light grey hits are used for the Kobe logo on each tongue, the Swoosh on each side panel, and the outsole. A speckled black midsole acts as a final touch on the eye-catching Nike Kobe 9 Elite XDR "Strategy."
