Each of the Nike Zoom Kobe VIII colorways we’ve seen to date shows off some aspect of the cutting edge synthetic build and its capacities for layering and general graphical complexity. Well here’s what the Black Mamba’s eighth Nike Basketball signature looks without any of the fancy vector graphics or multicolored scales, a green and silver Kobe VIII featuring white on the midsole and neon green sandwiching the simple design. It’s a reminder of both how far basketball sneakers have come and where they’re going in terms of visual engagement, plus the fact that even today’s tech marvels go through the same gradual process of refinement before they reach store shelves. Stick with Sneaker News for the Kobe 8 release date and let us know how this pair compares to the other we’ve seen.
