What makes this shoe once of a kind is the Flyknit technology that I is equipped with.

As stated on its release by Nike: "Nike Flyknit - which was first used in Nike Running shoes in 2012 - defies conventional shoe manufacturing processes by creating a one-piece engineered upper made from single strands of yarns. Lightweight yet incredibly strong, it has redefined sports shoe technology and comes to basketball for the first time in the KOBE 9 Elite."

A few months later the low versions were introduced which started with the "Bruce Lee" version of the sneakers. The designs progress as shown in the photos above.

The Air Mag style is also seen in the released Kobe 9 Shoes where they made a version of the new Kobe shoes with a Mag theme and called it Kobe 9 Elite "Mag". The Air Mag is the shoe popularized by Marty McFly in the movie "Back To The Future."
