With the launch of the Nike Basketball Elite 2.0 Collection, Nike has created alternate personas focusing on the “Superhero” qualities of its three signature athletes. For Kobe Bryant, the emphasis went on his speed, precision and unparalleled vision, using a lethal green pit viper snake colorway to bring some energy to this special installment of the Nike Kobe 8 Elite. With a debut launch of the Elite 2.0 line set for this Saturday, and a release of the “Superhero” set the following weekend, Nike Basketball hit us up with this limited edition special box featuring the Nike Kobe 8 Elite in a transparent case inspired by classic toy packaging to further bring home the superhero theme. Only a handful of these amazing boxes were created and will not be available at retail, so check out the exclusive photos below and stay tuned to Sneaker News tomorrow for an interview with Nike Basketball designer Leo Chang in which we discuss the entire inside story of the Nike Elite Series 2.0.

Damn such hostility on this page. Im a fan of the kobes for the style, and the fact that this shoe is sick at any blacklight party. Basketball wise, im a fan of the kd series because I like the extra cushion on the sole and the high ankle (except with the superheroes, still mad at that) everybody has their opinions. Stop attacking eachother and swearing because it really just makes you look unintelligent. All atheletes regardless of shoes tear things. In fact, a report came out that even if he had high tops, it wouldnt have done any good because he had so much strain on it previously.

Kobe fans are such dweebs. They speak as if they are the only ones who know anything, while in support of their favorite player. Well, the "superhero" is sitting at home wearing a "Kobe system" walking boot. 

Perhaps Nike should release those, then making them limited, coming in a special box.

Good riddance, and back to team basketball. I hope the Lakers pull out more than a few wins, while ignoring Kobe's twitter rants.

That's nice......but the packaging doesn't make it a good shoe. Kobe's shoes are straight trash. Basketball shoes are not meant to be lowtops which is why he has a turn Achilles now. Plus they're ugly. Fin.

whats the point if your not gonna give them to retailers?

fuck the green lol maybe if it was a better colorway i would buy. fuck green and for 200 you better make that kobe shoe all gold

why not make this box standard?.. justify the stupid, ridiculous price increase. some fly wire on the exterior doesnt warrant a 60.00 increase. at least try to act like you care nike that you'r raping the game lol jeez. I remember the jordan 17's were crazy priced 200.00 at that time that was insane for anything but foams but at least they justified it with a corny cd and steel case. So realistically you still felt cheated but at least you felt a lil good about it. now you get waaaay less for waaay more. o well. with that being said i'll still be copping. only bc i'ma huge kobe and laker fan go #lakeshow

GODDAMNNNN.....Alot of people gonna buy this not even gonna wear it for them self, they're heading straight to Ebay. Hypebeasts we know about ya.

Superheroes don't tear their achilles.

@TruthAlways  lmfao hes worn low tops for years? but thats why he has a "turn achilles" you cant turn you achilles doc, he ruptured it.

@Longstrokehave you seen the lakers vs warriors game? the same game kobe got injured, the warriors has him beat down and pushed around the entire game. his body and legs just gave up because he 34 years old.


but the rest of the lakers GUARDS are wearing kobe 8 elites and their achilles isnt torn, and their young. jodie meeks, steve blake, darius morris, goudelack, earl clark, duhon

@Longstroke The Achilles tendon is named after Achilles, who was a Greek god. By definition, Achilles himself is a superhero. So basically this is an incredibly stupid statement.

JasonMurashige

@louievdag @Longstroke so you're saying that everyone should get equal time with the ball? Okay, let's not give it to Dwight and Pau in the post as much. You're right, why give them the ball if everyone else can have a turn? Hell, let's start Goudelock and Sacre instead since we're playing "team ball."

JasonMurashige

@nickyflash @Longstroke How do you know so much about Kobe and the Lakers if you claim to hate everything about #24? It must suck not liking someone who is better than you at everything. Shit...If I hated Kobe I would be mad too. Your game needs work.

Longstroke

@nickyflash @Longstroke 

Didn't Kobe get in trouble last year for using that sort of language? He used that derogatory description as well..birds of a feather!

Nope, not a LeBron fan, I am a fan of the game, and I am happy that the "me first" Kobe Bryant isn't participating.

It would have been a bit more satisfying if Dwight had broken Kobe's legs for talking so much.

But him snapping his tendon in those ugly shoes, will suffice.

Lowtops can't protect you. Just because he does it doesn't make it heathy for him. KD is also young. One turn of that ankle and I guarantee he changes his mind about lowtops.

TruthAlways

Exactly why this isn't his first foot, ankle, leg etc. injury. Lowtops are for track and field.

You're going to need a black light for the box to look like it does above anyway. This special packaging has no point at all.

@longstroke do us all a favor and just stop posting here. You're nothing but an idiot who obviously do not watch the game. Kill yourself bro.

@gx5 @Longstroke he wasnt a greek god, he was simply immortal everywhere except his ankle because thats where his mother held him when she dipped him in the river styx.

The hell are you even going on about ? Kobe played more like a pg this year, than a sg especially after the AllStar break .

 @Longstrokesorry bro but you sound like a hating ass faggot that obviously isn't a fan of the game...cause anyone who is an actual true fan of the game would love to see Kobe in the playoffs...it almost doesn't feel right that his team is playing and he's not...so get the fuck outta here with that shit...i'd love to know who your favorite player is???

Longstroke

@LeoRamos @Longstroke @nickyflash 

So what? If you understood the game you'd know that even while having a certain number of assists, you can still be a ball hog. Some players, Kobe in particular, only give up the ball when they are forced to do so. He gets six assists because people see that this guy can't get it done with three future HOF'ers. The thing about Kobe is, it's all about how HE looks, not the team.  Proof of this is that now he still can't keep his mouth shut. looking desperate on twitter and texting the team at halftime. He needs to be in control...and now all he can do is hog the couch.

Good riddance.

@TruthAlways wouldnt matter if he was wearing hi tops or low.He wouldve got the same injury..they tape their ankles in the NBA so a little extra material is irrelevant

TruthAlways

Trust me. Just because they do it, doesn't make it smart. If you were at all concerned about the wear and tear on your body and injuring the only legs you have, you would protect them as much as possible.

JasonMurashige

@TruthAlways so...Kobe isn't serious? And half the NBA isn't serious? Where do you draw the line? LA fitness? Are those the true ballers?

TruthAlways

No one who is serious about their craft or the game is wearing Kobes.

Plus that was supposed to be torn Achilles.

@TruthAlways here on sneakernews they put up articles that show what nba players where. half the nba is wearing kobe 8's. im just saying.
