Nike Kobe 8: PEs for a Lost Season

December 5, 2013 BY / 6

Nike may have unveiled Kobe Bryant’s ninth signature model yesterday, but there are still some untold chapters in the story of the Kobe 8. Under normal circumstances, we would have seen a countless amount of Kobe 8 PEs on his feet between last season and the start of the 2013-2014 campaign, but as we all know, Kobe has been sidelined since tearing his Achilles tendon against the Warriors last April and has missed a considerable chunk of court time. As a result, several player exclusive editions of the Kobe 8 that Nike had lined up and waiting for their superstar endorser never got to experience the bright spotlight of the NBA hardwood.


Before we transition all of our attention over to the Kobe 9, we’re bringing you an exclusive look at some PE colorways of the Kobe 8 that fell through the cracks in terms of public visibility, including a super-rare White/Gold installment of this year’s Elite series model. The other pairs that you’re about to see may have never made it into a Lakers game, but they’ve all recently been worn by Kobe during his rehab workouts and return to team practices. As you can see, they’ve also been autographed and authenticated, and now thanks to S. Sami, who’s amazing Kobe collection you’ve already seen here on Select, we’ve got an up-close look for all our readers.
