kobe viii black yellow tongue logo Black/Yellow Nike Zoom Kobe VIII

Yesterday’s update of the Kobe VIII in the Black/Yellow colorway provided a clear view of the outer shell of the Kobe VIII, but what Eric Avar has focused on is the inner workings of the shoe that has made it one of the most popular and oft-used basketball sneakers in history. We’ll start with the tongue, which showcases the mamba snake encapsulating the Shozoku logo above calculated perforations to make the shoe as light as possible. The insole is what reveals the most; it’s built with LunarLon, giving the Kobe VIII an unprecedented bouncy cushion that Lunar has never failed to produce, and the indented markings like the System logo on the bottom may point to a return of the interchangeable ‘Fast’ and ‘Strong’ arrangement. There’s plenty more to see so enjoy this detailed gallery of the Kobe VIII below and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for all updates regarding the upcoming launch of the Kobe VIII.

The "mamba" addition to the logo is a nice touch of detail.

damn funny if Nike is just messing with all of us and these are next years dodgy China only kicks and the real super innovative Kobe 8's are still under wraps.... we can only hope

 They lack any innovation imo. I feel the VI has been his best. I'm sure the Chistmas c/w will be a hit. After that idk. I think Nike is giving the KB line the '' twilight'' treatment due to his age. I see money going into the KD line in the future. I will pretty much pass on the VIII except for Christmas.

like the potential with EM..great on lunarglide..just not sure it will be good for hoops. the home version is going to bet pretty dirty fast..wanna see xmas cw...is this lifestyle or the on court..i hope the former!

these are hideous! Kobe is my fav player but I don't know what he was thinking when he approved these. Nike better not put a $140 price tag on this garbage.

NO FLYWIRE?! NO ZOOM AIR?! HARD TO CALL THIS A KOBE SHOE! It better be the most comfortable shoe to play in EVER!

I hope they play just like the V's because those were nice, BUT... need more colorways to make finally judgement

Definite step up from the 7's color scheme's will make this shoe shine

 @truthBtold__ The cushion set up uses inserts im sure there will be multiple ie the Jordan 2012 so im sure we will see a zoom option as well
