Another Kobe 8 is on tap for the coming weeks, in all likelihood one of the final colorways of the current iteration of Beef’s signature model. The Nike Kobe 8 Deep Royal Blue release date is set for Saturday, September 7 at stateside Nike Basketball accounts.
The shoe’s Engineered Mesh upper goes solid-royal blue, but that’s where simplicity ends. An orange heel-counter overlays a snakescale-adorned tonal leather, while the laces employ a wild multi-colored print. And that all sits atop a peculiarly speckled orange midsole skin, which sits alongside an otherwise-solid-yellow sole.
It may not be the Kobe 8 Fireworks — but what is, really? — but I imagine this will find its market.
