The first shoe of the Kobe 8 System has a black and yellow colorway. The shoe resembles a convertible sports car with its low cut and racing stripes on the heel of each shoe. As usual Kobe has rocked a lower cut on his signature shoe and the shoe is one of the lightest basketball shoes to be created.
This colorway also works very well with all of the Lakers uniform combinations, including the Sunday whites.
As always several players have rocked this colorway on the Lakers including Earl Clark, Steve Blake, Darius Morris and of course Kobe himself. Also this colorway has been seen worn by Universities across the country.
Like most other Kobe kicks that are general releases these were $140 and released 12/20/12.
