Nike Kobe 8 “The Real What the Kobe 8″ by Mache Customs

June 2nd, 2013 by / 27

nike what the kobe 8 customs 7 Nike Kobe 8 The Real What the Kobe 8 by Mache Customs

The “What The” arrangement has been a wildly popular one with, Friday’s momentous release of the “What the MVP” marking off yet another mega-mash-up of colorways onto a shoe. It was indeed the SB Dunk that started it all, but last year’s Nike Zoom Kobe VII brought it over to the basketball category, spurning a number of sneaker customizers to do their thing. Mache Customs goes the extra mile for this one, employing the assistance of fellow sneaker remixer Relevant Customs and Absolelute to create what he calls “The REAL What the Kobe 8.

The predatory animals that were at focus in the Zoom Kobe VII are brought over in luxurious fashion, with purple python on the upper, black snakeskin for the lateral swooshes, shark on the rear heel, neon lizard for the rear Kobe logo., faux cheetah on the tongue and lining, and one of the craziest logos ever created (done by Absoleute). Only five will be made per order and a custom of this stature is certainly reserved for those who appreciate the “higher end” of the sneaker spectrum in terms of build quality and class of materials, so check out the gallery below and contact them through the Mache Customs official page for more info.

Looks like the medial swoosh is stingray... Nice!

Serious detail in these, props. A very talented individual did these, serious eye for color as well.

However, since these are Kobe's shoes, I'll call them the Peg Bundy's.

At the end of the day, Kobe 8 remains to be the closest associated with the Mamba.

Kobe 8 is to Black Mamba

KDIV is to Kevin Durantula

Yeah so only black people wear cheetah print? Shut your ignorant teenage trap up before someone else does. Go say that to a black person, heck a white person and I will laugh when you get beat the crap up. Want me to say something about white people? They think they're the only ones who exist and that everyone else in the world is a piece of shit, not all of them so but most of them act that way. They also wear their sneakers till the soles drop off, even then they still wear them, and they wear the stupidest outfits. Go back to the gutter you came from.
