As the second addition to the Nike Kobe VIII (8) System Elite+ series makes its way to retailers this weekend, today brings detailed images and release date info to the signature sneaker.

Like its predecessor, the Nike Kobe VII (7) System Elite+ “Away”, this silhouette will feature the same black and metallic gold color blocking and decorated Dynamic Flywire.
