Nike Kobe 8 “Year of the Horse”

December 18th, 2013 by | 11 comments

nike kobe 8 horse Nike Kobe 8 Year of the Horse

Nike’s Year of the Horse contingent grows by one with this new rather unexpected development.  Marking the first time any Nike Basketball shoe has ever been a canvas for two different Chinese New Year themes, the ‘Year of the Horse‘ Nike Kobe 8 makes its first appearance.  The Kobe 8 had already raised the bar with not one, not two, not three; well actually yes, three different Year of the Snake colorways back in spring.  It’s hanging around longer than had been the custom with the Kobe 9 Elite dropping in February, so the opportunity to answer the YOTS 8s with a YOTH Kobe 8 is one too good to miss.  A brand new upper pattern is one for which you’ll want to check back with Sneaker News for more details; let us know your first impression once you’ve seen more below.

Take a look at Kobe’s stat line while you can, because it might be the only time in his career you see him averaging under 20 points per game. After coming back in the Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Prelude against the Toronto Raptors, Vino returned home to Staples Center against the Suns last night and slammed home his first dunk after the achilles injury while wearing a special Nike Kobe 8 PP exclusive recently given an up close in our Kobe PEs for a Lost Season Select Feature. And while it didn’t result in a win, Kobe did reach the twenty point mark on only 11 shots in 20 minutes to continue to close the gap in becoming the NBA’s all time leading scorer (he’s currently 800 points shy of MJ to be third on the list). Stay with us after the click to get a full view of the Black Mamba’s footwear selection and let us know what you think in the comments.

And although LeBron refuses to admit there’s a bit of a rivalry between Indiana and his South Beach squad, his shoes told a different story as he laced up the NBA Finals Elite PE for the big game. Other highlights included Tony Wroten wearing another retro in the Air Jordan XII and a pair of Suns breaking out the latest LeBron signature so hit the click for another recap and as always, voice your opinions in the comments.
