nike zoom kobe viii blue purple Nike Zoom Kobe VIII   Blue   Purple

The clock continues to tick on Kobe Bryant’s latest signature sneaker, with a Christmas release pretty much confirming that the sneakers will arrive in some form or another before the year’s end. Another pair that we can expect in the mix somewhere is this, the Nike Zoom Kobe VIII in blue and purple. The colorway could mean a few different things in terms of inspiration-perhaps reviving the ‘Draft Day’ theme that alludes to the initial selection of Kobe by the Hornets or perhaps serving as a tribute to the Minneapolis Lakers of old. Click through for a full look and tell us what you think of this new Kobe VIII colorway in the comments.

Nike Kobe VIII “Christmas”

November 23rd, 2012 by | 16 comments

nike kobe viii christmas 11 Nike Kobe VIII Christmas

Each of the Nike Zoom Kobe VIIIs we’ve seen thus far has displayed a degree of graphical complexity, but none of them shows off the eighth Kobe Bryant Nike Basketball signature’s potential for room-stopping design like the rainbow mixture pictured above.  Just about any of the Black Mamba’s sigs would make a perfect complement for 2013′s Year of the Snake celebration, but instead it looks like these multicolored Kobe 8s are a festive rendition for Christmas Day that we can expect to see against the Knicks on ABC.  The high-energy design is going to look spectacular contrasting the Lakers’ snow white xmas unis, so have a closer look below and stick with Sneaker News for the release date.

Each of the Nike Zoom Kobe VIII colorways we’ve seen to date shows off some aspect of the cutting edge synthetic build and its capacities for layering and general graphical complexity.  Well here’s what the Black Mamba’s eighth Nike Basketball signature looks without any of the fancy vector graphics or multicolored scales, a green and silver Kobe VIII featuring white on the midsole and neon green sandwiching the simple design.  It’s a reminder of both how far basketball sneakers have come and where they’re going in terms of visual engagement, plus the fact that even today’s tech marvels go through the same gradual process of refinement before they reach store shelves.  Stick with Sneaker News for the Kobe 8 release date and let us know how this pair compares to the other we’ve seen.

Things are looking up for the Los Angeles Lakers since they shook things up with an unexpected name as their new head coach, and soon their on-court leader will have a nice burst of momentum from a brand new signature release.  This new Nike Zoom Kobe VIII is the most complete Lakers colorway we’ve seen to date (unless you count the ‘Scales’ multicolor design that could accommodate just about every team in the league).  They appear poised for away games with the black midsole, heel and tongue area and prove that even the less conceptually driven ZK8s offer some serious state-of-the-art complexity.  Let us know what you think about the evolution of the Zoom Kobe series’ textures and graphics over the past few years and stick with Sneaker News for all the Zoom Kobe 8 release dates.

Some new looks are in store for Kobe Bryant – first with new coach Mike D’Antoni now running the team, and later on a new pair of kicks donning his iconic signature. We recently showed you a nice detailed gallery of all the Kobe VIII innards, revealing a LunarLon insole, a possible ‘System’ approach. and a unique tongue construction that reduces weight. A closer look at the upper reveals something like a mix of Fuse and Engineered Mesh, which we can only imagine will be even lighter and more breathable than ever. Enjoy the gallery below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more release info and updates, and let us know in the comments what you think of the new design.
