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.

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.

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