Not only are the Los Angeles Lakers missing out on their franchise star, Kobe Bryant’s absence so far during this young NBA season means we’re losing opportunities to see the Black Mamba on court in a variety of PEs and other special colorways. Take for example this Nike Kobe 8 in a Lakers home colorway. It’s one of the simplest Kobe 8s to date, eschewing just about all detail on the Engineered Mesh upper in favor of a pristine white build and a subtle ‘KB24′ hit at the tongue. The midsole has some speckling on the yellow parts with purple sandwiching the shoe from sockliner to outsole. Check them out with more shown below and stick with Sneaker News to see if these ever release or show up on Kobe’s feet.
