Originally thought to be part of the Nike N7 range, this Kobe 8 is now going by "Venice Beach". Yes, that coastal district of Los Angeles known for graffiti, street basketball (White Men Can't Jump), drum circles, cultural diversity and recently, gentrification. With such a colorful landscape, it makes sense that the Kobe 8's inspired by it would be just as colorful. Metallic silver and stadium grey temper the colors that are arranged in a manner that would easily be at home on a designer sweater. Get ready, the kicks are dropping on the 25th of May at your local Nike Basketball haunts (Social Status) or direct from Nike.com.
