From slam dunk giant to versatile vet, Kobe Bryant has shined as a star of stars since his first season in the league. Switching shoe sponsors but always sporting something special, Kobe has kept up with and set some of the biggest trends in basketball footwear. Though not playing, we celebrate his sixteenth All-Star selection with a complete history of his kicks from the showcase weekend.
Quite the rarity, the Nike Kobe 8 has been spotted in a second “Black History Month” colorway. Sporting a printed upper similiar to its counterpart, this year’s purple and gold motif is opted for, with violet marking its territory on the upper in varying shades. Metallic gold is worked into the equation, lighting things up on the Swoosh and heel counter, while also featured via speckles on the midsole. Completing the kick in grand fashion, an opaque outsole is seen also in violet. Check it out for yourself in the embedded Instagram video (courtesy of @realpromotagged) below, and let us know how this one stacks up against the original Kobe 8 “BHM.”
Rappers wanna be hoopers, hoopers wanna be rappers, and they all want to headline Celebrity Sneaker Stalker.

It’s not all hip-hop and hoops though, as we see actor Jerry Ferrara return to Turtle and model Joan Smalls rock Riccardo Tisci’s tandem Nikes. Who did it the best this week? Let us know by voting in the comment section, on Twitter and in the poll.
First seen on the feet of Kobe Bryant’s wife, we get official images and nomenclature from the source of the Nike Kobe 8 “Green Glow.” Going the tandem route on the upper, green glow comes together with mineral teal hits, creating a snakeskin-like print, with laser orange taking its place on the accents, inner lining and outsole. Look for the “Green Glow” Kobe 8 to drop this Friday, December 20 for $140.
