News on the Nike Zoom Kobe VIII has been a bit slower to arrive with respect to the other big names in Nike Basketball, the model apparently poised for a little later rollout. So far, the best view of the Nike Zoom Kobe 8 that we have been privy to has been of the lifestyle persuasion, with some grainy photos of the basketball version being the first to arrive. The pair pictured lands somewhere in between those two designs, with a crazy black and yellow patterning and what appears to be a Hyperfuse upper, leaving little in terms of seams and no doubt resulting in quite the lightweight sneaker. As you can see, the pair also has a more defined heel clip, some extra detailing on the tongue logo, and a bit of a different set up on the lace placket. Click through to check out this Nike Zoom Kobe 8 sample, along with the additional versions that we’ve previously seen, and stay tuned to find out which iteration of the eventual upcoming model this will turn out to be.

i really hope all these pics are of the "lifestyle" the sketch pic looks dope..i really hope that is the actual on court shoe! the purple and black looks decent but i really hope the sketch is the closest to final version!
one of the new colorways should have a plastic top layer that you can peel off like snakeskin, that would be dope imo
lets hope the middle is the game shoe..just give me the tongue with the system and i am cool! i actually like the swoosh on the toebox..little different..sleeker vii but looks comfy like the vi...def plus! has an air go lwp look to it as well!
