REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Nike will be releasing the new Kobe Bryant basketball shoes this month that were inspired by the Philippines.

The Nike Kobe 9 EM Philippines was created by Fil-Am Eric Goto.

The color for the banig pattern of the shoe was inspired by painted barangay courts and serves as a reminder of where the Pinoy love of basketball began.

Perhaps the most clever part of the shoe is its sole where there is an imprint of flip-flop sandals representing how Filipinos will play basketball in any type of footwear.

The Kobes will be released on May 23 at a price of $180.
