We’ve seen the Nike Kobe line go low and stay low from the Zoom Kobe IV through 8 because he likes the sleekness of a soccer cleat-esque fit. Now they’re taking KB24′s soccer love to the next level with the Kobe 8 System MC.
MC stands for Mambacurial, a portmanteau denoting the Mercurial Vapor IX “Fireberry” influence on this edition. Seen here in Red Plum/Electric Green-Pink Flash, the Kobe 8 MC features a strong fuchsia-to-pink gradient appearance supplemented by that bright green on the Swoosh and translucent outsole, through which a zoom-up of grass can be seen.
Official release info to come. Early pairs available now at Kicks-Crew. More photos ahead.
