Nike Kobe 8 System Elite – Black/Metallic Gold

words // Brandon Richard

A late-season injury ended Kobe Bryant’s year prematurely, but Nike Basketball continues to celebrate his sustained level of excellence with another Kobe 8 System Elite release.

The Kobe 8 System Elite enhances footwork with deceptive speed, enabled by a carbon fiber heel clip and Kevlar reinforced Dynamic Flywire. The two components are complemented by Zoom technology to help you stay a step ahead of your opponents.

A Phylon midsole works with the Zoom technology to provide consistent, responsive cushioning, allowing you to cut with confidence. An articulated foam tongue protects against impact and reduces pressure. The thin web rubber outsole is designed for lightweight durability and traction.

This particular pair sports a sleek black look with championship-inspired metallic gold accents on the tongue logo, lace and Flywire speckle, heel detail and Swoosh branding.

You can grab the newest Kobe Bryant shoes here today.
