Nike Kobe 8 – Purple Gradient

So the Lakers haven’t really been on their game…but Kobe’s sneaker rotation of the Kobe 8 is simply on point. He’s been rotating a combo of Player Exclusives like this sick gradient-effect of purple tones, which, quite honestly, kinda have a ‘Galaxy’ feel to them. Many have praised the Kobe 8 for bringing an unprecedented level of style to the Kobe line as well as Nike’s Hoops wing as a whole, and colorways like these will only elevate the Kobe line back to prominence after a relatively mediocre showing by the VII in the States. We’ll keep you in the loop if we learn of a release, so check out the extra photo taken by Kobe himself (he recently joined Twitter, FYI) as well as another shot of Kobe, Dwight, and Coach D’Antoni below.

Kobe Bryant’s 42-point outburst was the silver lining around the Lakers’ disappointing loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, but there’s something else Kobe-related to note – his kicks! For his trip to Cleveland, the Lakers legend whipped out a tonal-black colorway of the upcoming Nike Kobe 8; it’s not clear whether or not these are an upcoming releases or just a stealthy PE for Kobe to test out on-court while remaining inconspicuous, but it’s still a reminder that the eighth Kobe sig is just around the corner. More shots of this tonal-black Kobe 8 below, so take a look and be sure to keep it locked in on Sneaker News for all your high-res NBA Feet coverage.

Layupshot’s NBA superstar-inspired Air Force 1 Bespoke series continues with this detailed look at a Kobe Bryant design! They’ve managed to stick with a strict formula of using team jersey colorways (note – the team that originally drafted the player), player initials on the heel, and jeresy numbers embroidered on the shoe. The Kobe receives a visual boost with the elephant print toe-box and interior lining, but we can’t help but point out that it was the Charlotte Hornets and not the Lakers that picked Kobe in the ’96 draft (and err…Kobe wears 24 now)! A detailed gallery awaits so give it a look and let us know what you think about this ‘Rookie x All-Star’ Bespoke series.
