Nike Kobe 8 (Official Pics)
Nike continue to hone Kobe Bryant's signature kick, creating a shoe made for total court precision. While the shape may be familiar, the Kobe 8 is the first Nike basketball shoe to be made from Engineered Mesh, enabling 360 degree ventilation and unparalleled lightness (the size 9 weighs in at a tiny 9.6 ounces). Featuring a full Lunarlon midsole and a wafer thin 1mm herringbone outsole, the Kobe 8 is an on-court control freak. Look out for the Chinese New Year python colourway to drop in Greater China on January 12th, with the North American release on February 12th.
