Sneaker News just unveiled to you the Nike Kobe 8 Elite that Kobe will wear for the 2013 Playoffs (should the Lakers make the cut-off). Aside from the tech upgrades, we noticed the punchy “Superhero” colorway that was in stark contrast to last year’s much more serious Black/Gold and White/Gold combos, but does that colorway stand up to the Nike Kobe 8 “Easter” – the highly touted release that’s slated to drop next weekend? Many are calling these the best Kobes since the Grinch, and this new high-def gallery should certainly sway some decisions to that controversial opinion. Be sure to grab the Easter Kobe 8s at select Nike Basketball retailers like Social Status on the confirmed release date of March 29th, and check out their photos below and let us know which of the Nike Basketball Easter Collection releases you like best.
