The Nike Kobe 8 “Milk Snake” popped up out of nowhere yesterday, immediately registering a blip on the radar of a good lot of folks who probably aren’t used to batting an eyelash at Kobe Bryant footwear. The Black Mamba himself is one of the select few to already acquire the pair, as Kobe was seen at his own basketball camp with the anticipated pair on feet. As mentioned at their initial arrival-there’s a colorway that sounds pretty similar on the Nike release calender, but there’s not been absolute confirmation just yet that this is the same. Continue reading and chime in down in the comments section with your feelings on the “Milk Snake” Nike Kobe 8.

Kobe Bryant in Nike Kobe 8 Mid “Graffiti” PE

July 12th, 2013 by | 24 comments

nike kobe 8 mid summary Kobe Bryant in Nike Kobe 8 Mid Graffiti PE

The Nike Kobe 8 continues to be the most scintillating story of the Summer months as we now get a look at a sick mid-cut PE of the Nike Kobe 8 on the man’s feet. Spotted yesterday during the Kobe Bryant Basketball Academy at UCSB, the Nike Kobe 8 Mid PE (in the “Graffiti” colorway no less) might be a special model just for Kobe as he continues to heel his recovering ankle. However, we’ve seen a GS release of the same colorway come in mid-cut form as well, so will these release? We know the Nike Kobe 8 “Graffiti” is indeed dropping in August, but a Kobe 8 Mid would be an exciting curveball to say the least. Check out Kobe below and stay tuned for updates!

Kobe Bryant in Nike Kobe 8 Mambacurial & Venice Beach

Kobe Bryant recently said he sees himself playing three to four more years for the Los Angeles Lakers.  That’s enough time to match Michael Jordan’s championships and get in the Karl Malone/Kareem Abdul-Jabbar neighborhood in career scoring.  The unceremonious end to Kobe’s 2012-13 season means he’ll have to fight uphill for these milestones, including coming back from the toughest injury from his career.  Kobe’s in good spirits and taking advantage of the summer’s restorative powers (remember, he played straight through last year en route to a second Olympic gold), including enjoying the game of football that has influenced him since his childhood in Italy.  Included in recent photos he’s tweeted from a soccer-centric vacation was a shot in the ‘Venice Beach’ Nike Kobe 8 alongside Brazilian superstar Ronaldinho and wearing the ‘Mambacurial’ in a shot posed with the CBF’s up and coming Leandro Damiao.  Tons of foot power in this post, so click through for more images and stick with Sneaker News because the Kobe 9 isn’t too far off.

Nike Creates a “Medical Mamba” Sneaker for Kobe Bryant’s Rehab

medical mamba sneaker Nike Creates a Medical Mamba Sneaker for Kobe Bryants Rehab

Kobe Bryant‘s rehab seems to be ahead of schedule because he believes he can be back for the regular season opener later this year. The fast-moving process could be in part due to the special “Medical Mamba” sneaker that Nike made just for the Black Mamba to help with his rehab. Although a clear shot can’t be taken from this photo of Kobe putting in work several days ago, it does look like the Nike Kobe 8 in a high-top build, presumably to protect his ailing Achilles. Thoughts on the Nike Kobe returning to mid-top form for the first time since the Nike Zoom Kobe III?

So there’s some serious concern that the Los Angeles Lakers might miss the Playoffs altogether – it all comes down to the final few games of the regular season. To put away any doubt of missing the postseason, Kobe and crew just need to win out, and last night’s gutsy win over the Portland Blazers proved that sometimes that extra 10% and the “will to win” do make a difference. For last night’s crucial game, Kobe Bryant debuted the Nike Kobe 8 Elite in Black/Gold – a shoe that as of now won’t release until June, which is separate from the release dates of the KD and LeBron Elite releases. If the Lakers manage to pull into the Playoffs, do you think Nike will push forward the release date? Check out the high-def gallery of Kobe below and stay tuned for updates.
