Kobe Bryant’s eighth shoe has shown incredible promise with the incredible colorways that we’ve been previewing thus far. Not that the Kobe line has any business being on a proving ground of any kind, the fact is that the VII was a bit of a downer and at the outset, the Kobe 8 didn’t seem that much of a departure for basketball fans to give the shoe its undivided attention. Lunar and Engineered Mesh is certainly a departure from a structural standpoint, and thus far, the crazy snake-inspired geometric pattern on the upper has been a marvelous view in the dazzling color-combos that we’ve seen, and this Grey/Volt pair only adds to the energy because, well, Grey/Volt is simplay that colorway. We’ve got multiple angles of this newbie below so take a look and stick with Sneaker News for more updates.
