It’s clear that Nike has moved forward from simply mixing and matching colors and is now diving off the deep end with incredibly funky graphics on its shoes. Take the Nike Kobe 8 for example, which, according to some, maybe be the top dog of the Nike Basketball trio this season thanks to the incredibly eccentric graphics on the upper like this tie-dye-ish paint-streak. The smudgy colors on the upper offer up an unprecedented level of color contrast, with the blue, yellow, and red colorway with the orange lining maximizing the color contrast. Not much is known about this pair as of now, but could this be a special pack release – perhaps something for Barcelona?
