When a new Nike Zoom Kobe model arrives it’s guaranteed to come with a least a few yellow pairs here and there, with the rest of the range pretty much up in the air. Nailing things down a little bit is this latest pair of the Nike Zoom Kobe VIII, sporting a black and red pairing in that same sort of tessellated geometric look, a pattern vaguely reminiscent of the recent Air Jordan 2012 lite remixes. Click through with us to get a more complete view of the Nike Zoom Kobe VIII in black/red and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Im feelin the sole, i dont like that pattern, & its seems not to have any flywire or Dynamic flywire(which im a huge fan of) ,i love the Kobes so ima still gonna get em for ball
Its almost like Nike wants the Lebron's to be the front runner while Kobe and KD are put on the back burner. They look exactly like the VII, Nike is lazy.
these must be a joke right? they literally look like water shoes. WTF happened to all the Nike Sigs this year? they all needed to take a few more hits to expand their horizons LOL.
Wtf is this?,smh. We need the hightop styles back like the Kobe zoom 3. They better be fucking with us or like Dreamchaser said these shoes will be sold at CVS
I've been saying it for a while...Kobe's line is soooo boring. His shoes are like iPhones; A few little minor tweaks and upgrades and sell it to people like it's something totally new.
i dunno i think these are alright, being a low top lover i think these have potential. they look light, breathable and good for players who dont want huge bricks like lebron X's on there feet. lookin forward to some decent colourways though.
im just shocked and speechless with how crushed and disappointed i am. ima huge kobe fan and a huge supporter of his sneaker line.. i was really anticipating this one to be special. especially since he once wore #8 on his jersey.. nike made us wait so long just to serve us this?.. wow. they better pull out all the stops as far as colorways cuz so far... blk/ yellow n blk / red both SUCK!!!!
im really sick of these kobes they all look the same wats different about this design its more smoother, tweakd the back up a lil bit. when is he going back to his high top series im done wit the low cut series.
cant believe how disappointed i am in nike basketball this year.. they left off last season so good with the elites but this year is just garbage with the exception of the lebron X's.. pissed i didnt buy those easter kobes when i had the chance b/c this years look like trash and the durant V's are still to be determined
@JibreelOBannon Naah.. dats exactly wat it is... lebron earns more money fa Nike then kd & Kobe.. so lebron gets da most attention. He's king shit on turd mountain right now yo lol
@Big_Infinite its easy to steal sum1s swag & call it their own... but u take it to a whole new level. But u don't like urself, so its fine... least I can prove dats me on ur profile... can u???
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite you're a complete joke. dumb mfer doesn't know when to give up. you'll never be "big_infinite"
@npt he's hypebeast. let him "see" what's on the shelves in one location at one point of time. he really doesn't have a clue about the global perspective of merchandise sales.
A larger Quantity of Kobes are produced Not to mention the amount of Colourways..Nike would release more colourways of lebrons if that were true.You know to make more easy money
@npt @JibreelOBannon loves merchandise like t shirts & shorts sell more, but u can even check Nike stock lines, lebron sells far more shoes then Kobe & kd. And lebron has had more sell out of shoes then Kobe... when I go into my local house of hoops, I see pleeeeenty of Kobe & kd shoes... u probably see only 2 to 3 lebron shoes on da shelves. And dats da Blk outs frum last Blk Friday, fire berry lows & elite aways. Dats it... theirs at least 10 pair of kobez including da gold medal, yr of da dragons & Xmas kobes.. and we still have gold medal & believe it or not scoring title kd's on da wall... so its easily lebron as da high money maker in da Nike camp... Kobe is goin to retire in 2 yrs & kd is da next in line.. but right now, its king James. And u can easily tell cuz Nike is still droppin Kobe 7 shoes & pushed kd 5s til Dec... we already have 3 pair of lebron 10s dat dropped & about to drop da 4th installment in da pressures next week & then da US release of da jades...
