Kobe Bryant's new shoe the Nike Kobe 9 Elite 'Masterpiece' gets modeled by his wife Vanessa on Instagram.  We're just over a week away from the release of the first colorway from his ninth signature shoe with Nike but Vanessa got her pair early. 

Even though Kobe is injured and waiting to hit the hardwood again, his sneakers are still popular.  Nike Basketball's launch event in December made all sneaker enthusiast stop what they were doing and join in.  Kobe attended the event to unveil his next generation shoe which has so far been received well by influential people in the shoe industry.

Vanessa Bryant, Kobe's wife, took to Instagram to give us a on feet look at what the shoe will look like.  She posted different angles of the shoe in one picture.

I am excited about potentially buying a pair but now that Vanessa posted this picture maybe I can get my girlfriend to get a pair too.  I know the his and hers matching is corny but the shoes are fresh.  Remember, the Nike Kobe 9 Elite 'Masterpiece' release on February 8th at Nike for $225.
