This sick colorway of the Nike Kobe 8 Elite is a bit of a sore sight. While the “Lakers” colorway is pretty darn impressive of the Elite model, we know this is the shoe (and according to the source of this photo, the exact shoe) that Kobe Bryant sustained the season-ending and Championship-erasing injury right before the regular season came to a close. To make things even more of a pain, we know that these won’t release because Leo Chang confirmed that only two colorways of the Nike Kobe 8 Elite will release (the Black/Gold in June and this weekend’s “Superhero”).
