According to Nike, Kobe Bryant is a Lifestyle. Well, that, at least, is what Nike is attempting to convey with this Spring 2013 Kobe-branded model. Here’s a first look at the Nike Zoom Kobe 8 Lifestyle, which features a familiar profile (along the lines of the Kobe V-VII) with a surprising suede upper; the already low-pro Kobe concept is met with lifestyle-sneaker materials and accents, like the VacTech bulging toe and lace-placket and the stitched-on Swoosh on the medial side-wall of the shoe. The Kobe 8 Lifestyle is indeed the perfect mix of what we’ve come to know with the three most recent Zoom Kobe models with Nike Sportswear’s build techniques, but how will it fare in retail? More detailed viewings of this interesting Kobe model is just ahead so give them a thorough review and check out the full listing from dballaholic on eBay.

If Nike chooses to continue with the release schedule for the Kobe, we probably won’t see the Kobe VIII until early January (after Kobe introduces the shoe during the famed Christmas Day game). Til then, we’ll be treated to more Kobe VII colorways, like this amazing Lakers Home-inspired colorway with a sublime touch of white/grey speckling on the midsole. Add on the unique snakeskin-style applique on the tongue and ankle foxing and the golden interior lining and you’ve got perhaps one of the best Kobe VII colorways yet. A detailed gallery is just below, so take a look and we’ll let you know when these hit retailers on our side of the planet.

There was once upon a time in Kobe Bryant’s career when it wasn’t too out of the ordinary to see him wearing Air Jordan’s, his on court selection anchored by a sick set of retro PE’s during the time when his status as a Nike endorsed athlete was a bit shaky. With those days in the past said sightings are a bit more rare but do indeed still happen, this most recent one taking place during Kobe’s appearance at My Friend’s Place, an LA shelter for homeless youth that he’s helping in renovating. The sneakers: the Air Jordan IV retro that just hit over the summer in the white/varsity red colorway. Click through for some extra shots of Kobe in some skinny red jeans that may or may not have been borrowed from the closet of one Dwyane Wade and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Looks like there’s some more Kobe-branded goodies for the overseas cats – the low-pro and stylish Nike Black Mamba 24. Continuing with the ankle-less construction, the Black Mamba 24 adds in Hyperfuse cut-outs with other features carried over from Zoom Kobe heritage like the pronounced heel-counter. Five punchy colorways are expected to hit retailers in Asia, where the Kobe fandom is far greater than it is in the States, but do you think Nike Basketball should open up a channel for these Kobe kicks to the U.S. market? Check out the five colorways of the Black Mamba 24 and let us know if you think there should be more non-signature Kobe footwear available in your area.
