Aside from his contract extension with the Lakers, their likely placement among the top 2014 NBA Draft picks and the positive reception from the new Kobe 9 Elite, this has been a lost season for Kobe Bryant. Maybe that’s why it seems fitting that previously unseen unreleased Nike Kobe 8 samples continue to pop up a couple of months after the last pair hit retail. This one looks a little like the ‘Port Wine’ Year of the Snake edition thanks to the upper pattern, but in a case where all the red has been removed from the upper and channeled into a bright orange midsole. It’s an interesting look to be sure, so click in to get a better view, let us know if you would have copped these and check out the pair currently available from thesneakercloset13 on eBay.
