Nike KOBE 8 SYSTEM – Black/Street Grey-Vivid Sulfur

words // Luis Sanchez

Nike Basketball continues to take the Kobe signature line to new levels of innovation with the all new KOBE 8 SYSTEM, released this week here at Eastbay.

The high performance KOBE 8 utilizes one of Nike’s latest innovations in Engineered Mesh to construct their lightweight upper, coupled with full-length Lunarlon cushioning below. Making their debut in grand fashion, the KOBE 8 displays a unique graphic throughout their entire vivid sulfur upper. Street Grey hits the Swoosh branding, while vivid sulfur makes one last appearance along the midsole sitting below.

The KOBE 8 SYSTEM headlines an already great selection of performance-driven Nike Basketball shoes here at Eastbay.

    Copped yesterday, and at first, they didn’t feel right, really stiff and a lot less padding than the vii’s. Wore them all day today and they are great. They really mold to your feet, they are slightly wider than pervious models. These are great.
