It was a sad turn of events for Kobe Bryant, who suffered a season-ending injury just a few days before the Lakers made it into the Playoffs. However, the Kobe 8 line-up that has yet to release might be some of the best we’ve ever seen for the Black Mamba as we get a first look at a soccer-inspired Nike Kobe 8 “Mambacurial” with that “FB” vibe with the Swoosh at the forefoot. This should remind you of that sample of the Nike Kobe 8 we showed you back in August, and if you’re what the connection between international football and Kobe is, do some research! We’ll have more updates for you soon so check out the extra look below and stay tuned for more info.

Why Nike complicates naming sneakers? Whats in the name is "Mambacurial"?!!! 

Yes, Kobe is the Black Mamba but they way it was worded doesn't seem correct, let alone it does not connote to its CW.

Nike should plainly call it "THINK PINK".

Hey Nike, remember K.I.S.S.? Keep It Simple St*pid.

@TRoyBoy27 @WHWilly true, lot of players are wearing kobe 8 and lots of low top shoes like Hyperdunk and hyperfuse low , they wrap their ankles before the game, no matter what shoe they wear..
