Nike today lifted up the hood on the KOBE 8 SYSTEM’s and they are pretty great. You can decide for yourself if you enjoy them or not thanks to the below behind the scenes video and pictures. Sneakerheads, enjoy!

Speed. Precision. Vision. Versatility. Each of these traits is powerful on its own. When you bring them together, they’re unstoppable.

Nike Basketball factored in every dimension of Kobe Bryant’s formidable game in creating the KOBE 8 SYSTEM, which brings together performance innovations to create Kobe’s lowest and lightest performance basketball shoe to date at 9.6 ounces in a U.S. men’s size 9. The shoe’s provocative graphic snakeskin print was inspired by Kobe’s on-court alter ego the Black Mamba, with further inspiration from the Chinese Year of the Snake in 2013.

The KOBE 8 SYSTEM is the result of a close collaboration between Nike Performance Footwear Creative Director Eric Avar, his team and Kobe himself. For his latest creation, Kobe wanted a shoe that acted as an extension of his foot, mirroring his quick performance while staying lower to the ground.
