Nike Kobe 8 – Purple Gradient
So the Lakers haven’t really been on their game…but Kobe’s sneaker rotation of the Kobe 8 is simply on point. He’s been rotating a combo of Player Exclusives like this sick gradient-effect of purple tones, which, quite honestly, kinda have a ‘Galaxy’ feel to them. Many have praised the Kobe 8 for bringing an unprecedented level of style to the Kobe line as well as Nike’s Hoops wing as a whole, and colorways like these will only elevate the Kobe line back to prominence after a relatively mediocre showing by the VII in the States. We’ll keep you in the loop if we learn of a release, so check out the extra photo taken by Kobe himself (he recently joined Twitter, FYI) as well as another shot of Kobe, Dwight, and Coach D’Antoni below.
