Of Nike Basketball’s big three sig sneakers, I’m crowning the Kobe 8 as this year’s top dog. That’s not to say the LBJ 10 or the KD V aren’t dope, but, no matter if we’re talking comfort or colorways, the Kobe model is the one to cop. Continuing their run is the “Purple Platinum” version which is exactly what its name equates – a majestic shade of purple paired with platinum accents. Simple, but powerful.
Launching Saturday, May 11th at Nike retailers and at 8am EST on Nike.com.
