The Kobe 8 line is nearing its end, but we will always remember the 8 as arguably the best among its predecessors in terms of pure performance on the court. One of the last colorways is this red/orange based Kobe with a little metallic silver that may remind you of the “Year of the Snake” Kobe 8 that used a similar pattern. However, unlike the YOTS Kobe 8, this colorway uses black more, on the midsole, inner lining, laces, and the heel counter. Metallic silver can be found on the swoosh and the Kobe logo on the heel.
The Nike Kobe 8 “Challenge Red” will be available Saturday, June 15th at House of Hoops by Foot Locker, Foot Locker and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $140. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will carry this release.
