Kobe Bryant and Nike introduce his 8th signature sneaker, the Kobe 8 System. It is focused on performance and incorporates some new tech as well as some current favorites, such as Lunarlon, from the Beaverton Brand. Engineering Mesh is used on the upper of the low-cut shoe and Lunarlon provides the cushioning you need. The familiar heel counter returns, but has been slimmed a bit to fit with the mesh. Weighing 9.6 ounces, the first colorway of the Kobe 8, Black/Sulfur, will drop on December 20 with a price tag of $140. The python inspired colorway of the Kobe 8 will launch in the Greater China on January 12, 2013, and in North America on February 2, 2013.
