As i’m sure you all have heard the news about Kobe Bryant and his season ending injury. An injury that also put a huge damper on the debut of a new PE colorway of the Nike Kobe 8 System Elite. Designed for Laker home games, the shoe rocked a white-base with purple and gold accents, and a healthy amount of black with a translucent rubber outsole.
Though Lakers fans are sitting on pins and needles as they wonder what’s next for their beloved team, Kobe remains optimistic despite the recent turn of events. “It’s fueling me, it’s fueling me,” Bryant said about recovery. “I can feel it already. It’s just players at this stage of their career, they pop Achilles and the pundits say they never come back the same. So I can hear it already and it’s pissing me off right now thinking about it.”
Sneakerheads make sure you check out the pics of this latest pair of Kobe 8 System Elites in action and let us know what you think. Best wishes to the Black Mamba, we wish you a speedy recovery.
