Yesterday’s update of the Kobe VIII in the Black/Yellow colorway provided a clear view of the outer shell of the Kobe VIII, but what Eric Avar has focused on is the inner workings of the shoe that has made it one of the most popular and oft-used basketball sneakers in history. We’ll start with the tongue, which showcases the mamba snake encapsulating the Shozoku logo above calculated perforations to make the shoe as light as possible. The insole is what reveals the most; it’s built with LunarLon, giving the Kobe VIII an unprecedented bouncy cushion that Lunar has never failed to produce, and the indented markings like the System logo on the bottom may point to a return of the interchangeable ‘Fast’ and ‘Strong’ arrangement. There’s plenty more to see so enjoy this detailed gallery of the Kobe VIII below and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for all updates regarding the upcoming launch of the Kobe VIII.

Nike Kobe VIII – Black – Yellow

For the most part, the Zoom Kobe line has been very traditional in terms of the location of the Swoosh. From the IV to the upcoming VIII, the Kobe signature line has presented the Swoosh right in the middle of the upper (the II and III progressively pushed it back to the heel), but a first look at the medial side of the shoe reveals the Swoosh sitting right at the ankle collar, revealing the specifically-engineered mesh-like shell on the upper. While the complete details of the Kobe VIII are yet to be revealed, this multi-angle view should give you an even closer idea of the entire design as we near an official reveal/launch in late December/early January. Multiple angles are just ahead so take a look and give us your thoughts on the evolution of the low-top Kobe and if Nike Basketball should continue with this approach.

When a new Nike Zoom Kobe model arrives it’s guaranteed to come with a least a few yellow pairs here and there, with the rest of the range pretty much up in the air. Nailing things down a little bit is this latest pair of the Nike Zoom Kobe VIII, sporting a black and red pairing in that same sort of tessellated geometric look, a pattern vaguely reminiscent of the recent Air Jordan 2012 lite remixes.

News on the Nike Zoom Kobe VIII has been a bit slower to arrive with respect to the other big names in Nike Basketball, the model apparently poised for a little later rollout. So far, the best view of the Nike Zoom Kobe 8 that we have been privy to has been of the lifestyle persuasion, with some grainy photos of the basketball version being the first to arrive. The pair pictured lands somewhere in between those two designs, with a crazy black and yellow patterning and what appears to be a Hyperfuse upper, leaving little in terms of seams and no doubt resulting in quite the lightweight sneaker. As you can see, the pair also has a more defined heel clip, some extra detailing on the tongue logo, and a bit of a different set up on the lace placket. Click through to check out this Nike Zoom Kobe 8 sample, along with the additional versions that we’ve previously seen, and stay tuned to find out which iteration of the eventual upcoming model this will turn out to be.
