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.
