The people of the Philippines love their basketball, in fact basketball is the country’s most popular sport by far. Kobe Bryant also happens to be the most popular athlete there. For the UAAP Basketball Tournament, two colorways were created for the games in Black/Red/Crimson and Black/Silver. Both colorways use the same black mesh upper with a silver Swoosh design. Jagged graphics along the midsole and inner lining make this pack much different from past releases. Thankfully, this pack has finally made it over to the states. The Black Mamba was seen wearing the Black/Silver colorway just a few days ago. Pick your poison, Black/Red/Crimson or Black/Silver?
The Nike Kobe 8 “Philippines Pack,” featuring the Black/Red and Black/Silver colorways are now arriving in stores and cost $150 each. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will carry this release.
