Nike Zoom Kobe VIII (8)

Posted: September 21, 2012 at 5:32 pm   /   by   /   comments (14)

Don’t worry; this is a lifestyle version of the upcoming Kobe VIII… because that’s what we’ve been wanting from the Kobe signature line.

The release version may feature Nike’s latest version of Fuse & Flywire that we’ve been seeing on the Hyperdunk 2012 & LeBron X or the rumored engineered mesh and the system seems to be missing… I hope they it’s never found. All jokes aside, that traction looks very good

Take a look at what Nike may be planning come 2013, a Lifestyle Kobe signature series.

    These are ugly!! Hopefully they’ll have better ventilation and cushion too.

    Thank God the System is gone! That was the worst part about the KBVII for me, the cushion it was that bad. Looks good, can´t wait for the final version.

    what is that suede? the shoe looks dirty already…. cool concept, but I don’t think the Kobe line is ready for a lifestyle shoe just yet.

    The Kobe 8 upper will be engineered mesh

        It is an engineered mesh upper and will be a system wont be as bulky as the 7 insole set up

          He’s asking if you have any evidence for your argument… You don’t need to state it twice.

    Hope they make all those “limited” colorways ONLY in the lifestyle version so the POSERS stay away from the performance version. Doubt that happens, but it’s not bad to wish lol

    Surprisingly, these doesn’t look that bad for a lifestyle shoe in the kobe line.

    I can’t wait to see the final look of Nike Zoom Kobe 8, I can tell nike engineers for Kobe 8 heard us to relocate the swoosh. This is great to see located to the side and a small swoosh near the ankle on the other side not infront like the Hyperdunk 2012 Lunarlon. Specially designing it like Nike Zoom Kobe 5 & 6 no removable tongue and ankle support which the downside of Nike Zoom Kobe 7. Nike engineers for Kobe 8 hopefully redesign the Traction and the Carbon Fiber outlook its kinda lame. They should stick on the Nike Kobe 7 Traction and Carbon Fiber look of Nike Zoom Kobe 5 which are the Best features of the Kobe’s. Nike Engineers for Nike Zoom Kobe 8 please hear us again we are Kobe’s shoes Filipino Enthusiast. God Bless!
