About Kobe 8

The Kobe line is known for its innovation, performance, and style, as well as its influence on other athletes and sneakerheads.

One of the most popular models in the shoe line is the Kobe 8, which debuted in 2012. The sneaker was designed by Eric Avar, who worked closely with Kobe to create a shoe that would enhance his speed, agility, and control on the court.

The Kobe 8 featured a low-cut design, an engineered mesh upper, a full-length Lunarlon midsole, a Zoom Air unit in the heel, and a herringbone traction pattern on the outsole. Additionally, the shoe had a variety of colorways and patterns, some of which were inspired by Kobe’s interests and hobbies, such as snakeskin, graffiti, and chess.

The Nike Kobe 8 was worn by Kobe during the first half of the 2011-2012 season, when he averaged 27.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game. He also wore them during the 2012 London Olympics, where he helped Team USA win the gold medal. The shoe was last seen in 2016 when Nike released the “Black Mamba” pack, a collection of all 11 Kobe signature models in black and gold colorways.

In 2023, Nike will bring back the Kobe 8 in its Protro form, which stands for performance retro. This means that the shoe will have improved technology and materials, such as a more responsive cushioning system and a more durable upper. However, the shoe will also retain its original look and feel as a tribute to Kobe’s legacy and style.
