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.”
