Presented here is an early sample mockup of Kobe Bryant's upcoming Nike Kobe 8.
Featuring a "System" construction like the Kobe 7, the latest Black Mamba signature looks to feature a low-top upper of Engineered Mesh and synthetics for a lightweight, breathable construction while an inner sleeve and interchangeable cushioning options will also be present. Finally, unlike the sample pictured here, the final version will see the Swoosh moved back toward the external heel counter, a la past Kobe releases.
What do you think of Nike's decision to retain the "System"? Enjoy this fist look and stay tuned for additional looks and info.
