There’s plenty of Kobe heat to look forward to even though the Black Mamba has been out of action (and will be for a considerable time). The Mambacurial joints have been keep the Kobe name buzzing, but many have been looking towards this Lakers-specific colorway that has been making its rounds as the “Purple Gradient” release.With the color fade going from light to dark at the toe to the heel and the clean white outsole joining the speckled midsole, the Nike Kobe 8 “Purple Gradient” might be one of the best team-based colorways of the year. These are officially releasing this Saturday, but avoid the release date hassle by getting a pair now from kickslusive on eBay.
