Nike Kobe 8 System – Philippines Pack

Nike Kobe 8 System - Philippines Pack (1)

words // Brandon Richard

Kobe Bryant is firmly established as the biggest international basketball star in the world. One of the places Kobe’s star shines brightest is the Philippines, where basketball’s popularity increases every day and the UAAP Basketball Tournaments are played.

Celebrating Kobe’s popularity in the Philippines, Nike Basketball recently created these special colorways of the Nike Kobe 8 System for the UAAP Tournament. The original plan was to keep the shoes exclusive, but with fans clamoring for a release, Nike decided to drop the Philippines style in a variety of colorways.

Each Kobe 8 from the “Philippines Pack” is black-based with jagged graphics in contrasting colors on the inner lining and midsole. Options include Game Royal, Gorge Green, Gym Red and Silver.

From a performance standpoint, the Kobe 8 System features a breathable Engineered Mesh upper, a Phylon midsole for comfort and stability, full-length Lunarlon cushioning and a one-millimeter rubber outsole for low-to-the-ground feel.

Stand out on your court by picking up a pair of these new Kobe Bryant shoes today.
