It finally happened-the Philippines special Kobe 8 is coming to the states. Foot Locker is letting both the red and the grey pairs from the group go now, meaning that you can cancel those travel plans you had that ended with you picking up a few pairs. The shoes are amongst a huge crop of Summer-time heaters for the Kobe 8 that have the shoe shining more than it ever did during the NBA season. See the colorways that are up for grabs below and then check out Foot Locker for info on where to get yours.
Here was Nike's reply when I asked how come these colorways were not available in the Philippines:
"Thank you for contacting Nike Consumer Services about your inquiry.
It may be possible that
the product that you are looking for were only available in some other
countries like US or UK but not here in the Philippines. Please note
that not all products that were released in other countries were also
available in Indonesia."
How ironic that these are not readily available in the Philippines. I even emailed Nike and they replied to the effect saying that some colorways are not available in some areas. But these are supposed to be Philippine special colorways??!!
