As the NBA Playoffs continue to heat up and all those in Laker Nation are still waiting to see what will happen next with their beloved team, Kobe Bryant’s 8th signature shoe seems unbothered by any of the rumor filled chatter of its namesakes retirement.
The “Blitz Blue” Nike Kobe 8 is the latest pair of Kobe 8’s to hit the net. Upon first glance, you sneakerheads will notice that these don’t go for an extravagant graphic look about the Engineered mesh infused upper but instead opt for a more subtle aesthetic approach.
Sporting a simple blue gradient-like effect throughout the upper which gives way to a vibrant set of orange Swooshes, this change in graphic look is a nice change of pace from the previous graphic heavy releases of the Kobe 8.
Simplistic color scheme aside, these kicks still have a bit of mystery looming about them as there isn’t a single US retailer reporting to have these in stock but have been confirmed to hit Canadian retailer Livestock tomorrow.
Keep reading after the jump to get an additional look at the “Blue Blitz” Nike Kobe 8 and be sure to keep rocking with SneakerFiles for further updates.
