The big advantage of Engineered Mesh is that the material allows for some pretty incredibly gradient-effect visuals, as seen with the Nike iD options on all the EM-built shoes like the Lunarglide+ 4, Air Max+ 2013, and so on. The Kobe 8 isn’t an exception because this “Purple Gradient” colorway that the Mamba rocked some time ago is one of the sickest “Lakers” colorways we’ve ever seen don the Shozoku as the toe-to-heel utilizes the lush purple from light to dark. Paired with a black midsole speckled with purple and a snow white outsole, we have one of the best colorways of the Nike Kobe 8 – or perhaps ever. Check the detailed gallery below and stay tuned for release info.
