Even though we’re inching closer and closer to the release of the Nike Kobe 9, the Kobe 8 isn’t done bringing the heat quite yet. On Saturday, November 30, as part of the Week of Greatness by Foot Locker, the Nike Kobe 8 “Mine Grey” will release in both adult and kids sizes. The “Mine Grey” Kobe 8 is officially a mine grey/black-court purple-university red colorway. The upper is cloaked in a grey snake skin pattern that sits above a purple speckled midsole. Red highlights take care of the heel tab and tongue branding while the Nike Swoosh design on the upper is purple both on the inside and outside of the shoe. While this shoe will come out before Kobe gets back on the court, expect to see the Black Mamba on the hardwood very soon.
The Nike Kobe 8 “Mine Grey” drops on Saturday, November 30, at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker, and online at Footlocker.com for $140. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release.
