Last night marked the official unveiling of Nike Basketball's Kobe VIII System. Accounting for Bryant's lowest and lightest signature to date, the innovative hoops silhouette comes in weighing at only 9.6 ounces, as it has been comprised predominantly of Engineered Mesh. A comfortable full-length Lunarlon sole system sits nicely underneath, while no-sew synthetic overlays have also been utilized on the upper. The Swoosh has scheduled for the Kobe VIII System to hit NIKEiD next month, as you can begin your designs on the 4th and then purchase on the 20th. In addition, the black and Sulfur colorway will be made available on that same day. Check the detailed shots above.
