Jordan Brand was pushing hard to sign Kobe Bryant as the newest member of their team during the Black Mamba’s sneaker free agent season in 2002-2003.

One of the rare pairs that were designed for him was this Air Jordan 9 “Cool Grey” PE. The shoe features its usual Cool Grey upper paired with a White midsole that comes with exclusive Yellow branding and Kobe’s then-number “8” stitched on the heels.

For Kobe Bryant’s retirement, Jordan Brand released an exclusive Air Jordan Kobe Bryant Pack for friends and family back in 2016 that included the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 8.

Take a look at this rare Kobe Bryant Air Jordan 9 Cool Grey PE below.
