There’s plenty of Kobe heat to look forward to even though the Black Mamba has been out of action (and will be for a considerable time). The Mambacurial joints have been keep the Kobe name buzzing, but many have been looking towards this Lakers-specific colorway that has been making its rounds as the “Purple Gradient” release.With the color fade going from light to dark at the toe to the heel and the clean white outsole joining the speckled midsole, the Nike Kobe 8 “Purple Gradient” might be one of the best team-based colorways of the year. These are officially releasing this Saturday, but avoid the release date hassle by getting a pair now from kickslusive on eBay.

Why bother buying it on eBay at a hefty price when you will eventually see them on the racks of Nike outlet stores for less than $80?

Def thinking about copping these. Does anyone know about this new site coming out soon? http://www.sixthpair.com. Looks like a Kelly Blue Book site for sneakers.

It's funny how the fans of Kobe try and generate hype for his shoes, it's incredibly transparent.

I alwayz said that da outsole should of been black instead of da platinum grey... But they look great in person... 3M reflection on da swoosh & heel logo, da purple transition very nice. And kobes are very comfortable & responsive... So if ur lookin fa a good Kobe, these are it.. I own 4 pair of Kobe 8s, and to me their da best Kobe since he went to da low cut sneaker... So if u like them, get them bro. U won't b sorry

Laughing at your own jokes? Just like one of those simpleton Kobe fans and just like Kobe himself, you've probably got more pairs of sneakers than you do friends.
