Upon the unveiling of the Nike Kobe 8, the public response has been moving slowly out of the gate. Claims of it the 8 being to similar to previous versions or not quite capturing that b-ball shoe stance were some of the main points of critique, but after seeing Kobe rock the sick Christmas colorways just two days ago, minds have been changed. We’re getting a look at two new colorways of the Kobe 8 made for the Black Mamba – a dope purple/magenta gradient pair and a second grey-scale package with yellow/purple (he already wore these in a game). A full shot of both are below so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for potential release info.
sick! i love the purple joints..he rocked those in denver last night..too bad those are not dropping..boo!
That fade looks WAY better than the scale design to me. other than these grey scales, all the other CWs look a little weird with so many different shades of the same color on one shoe.
