Kobe Bryant seems like the odd man out heading into the Playoffs. Not only is he sitting out with injury, but his shoes – the Nike Kobe 8 Elite – are releasing at a separate time than the KD and LeBron. That’s because the Kobe 8 lifecycle isn’t anywhere near an end, because along with this upcoming Purple Gradient colorway, there’s still the matter of that multi-colored version and that curious “Mambacurial” version that has yet to unfold. Many are calling these Kobe 8 “Purple Gradient” joints one of the best Kobes ever, so if you agree, be on the hunt when it officially hits stores on May 11th.

I wish these came in GS size. Smh


a translucent sole would have taken these to the next level...


These are cool and all but its an easy pass for me. What's good with the white/concord CW that drops every year? I'll wait for those. He wore them in game and I was trippin because that cw looked so clean on the 8 model. Nike has been on some real fluorescent ish lately and I can't stand it. They have also abandoned some of the cleanest cw this season ( all grey lebrons). I hope they don't follow suit with the Kobes and the concord cw as well.


clean ... but i still think the easter edition is more dope

These are really nice, but the Lakers, unless they pull an upset, they'll be out of the playoffs.
