Just two days after wearing the Nike Kobe 8 System in an all-black colorway for the first time on court, our Kicks On Court column finds the Black Mamba in yet another Kobe 8 for the first time on the hardwood. He specifically laced up the original and most familiar color of his eighth signature shoe in the form of the “Away” Nike Kobe 8. This black and vivid sulfur shoe, which was unveiled by Nike two weeks ago in LA, will be hitting retailers on December 20th, for $140. It is the lightest Kobe signature to date (9.6 ounces) and draws inspiration from the Chinese Year of the Snake, 2013.?What are your thoughts on the Kobe 8 System so far? View these kicks plus more, worn by JR Smith, Dwight Howard, Damian Lillard and others, below. Also, check out what Spike Lee brought out at The Garden last night.
