Nike’s Year of the Horse contingent grows by one with this new rather unexpected development. Marking the first time any Nike Basketball shoe has ever been a canvas for two different Chinese New Year themes, the ‘Year of the Horse‘ Nike Kobe 8 makes its first appearance. The Kobe 8 had already raised the bar with not one, not two, not three; well actually yes, three different Year of the Snake colorways back in spring. It’s hanging around longer than had been the custom with the Kobe 9 Elite dropping in February, so the opportunity to answer the YOTS 8s with a YOTH Kobe 8 is one too good to miss. A brand new upper pattern is one for which you’ll want to check back with Sneaker News for more details; let us know your first impression once you’ve seen more below.
