It’s clear that Nike has moved forward from simply mixing and matching colors and is now diving off the deep end with incredibly funky graphics on its shoes. Take the Nike Kobe 8 for example, which, according to some, maybe be the top dog of the Nike Basketball trio this season thanks to the incredibly eccentric graphics on the upper like this tie-dye-ish paint-streak. The smudgy colors on the upper offer up an unprecedented level of color contrast, with the blue, yellow, and red colorway with the orange lining maximizing the color contrast. Not much is known about this pair as of now, but could this be a special pack release – perhaps something for Barcelona? Check the extra angle below and stay tuned to Sneaker News as more info becomes available.
This is not surprising to me.
The much-heralded Kobe 6 "Helicopter" (Glass Blue) - check link below:
...has finally spun-off to a Kobe 8 BYR (shown above).
A yellowish icy sole should have made these 8s sicker.
Got to check this one out personally.
Loving these kicks man! But y'all know they gonna release over seas like the Barcelona joints from last year..
could make sense...pumped for the red camo and purple gradient..cant wait to see the elite home if la gets to the 2nd season!
