Nike Kobe 8 “Purple Gradient”

Now that the dust has settled, let’s crown the Kobe 8 as the best offering Nike Basketball has this year. Most colorways have been fan favorites with the “Christmas”, “Easter” and “All Star Area 72” as successful colorways to name a few. The latest upcoming colorway that has sneakerheads foaming at mouth is the “Purple Gradient” mockup of the Kobe 8 the Black Mamba himself rocked during a game. The engineered mesh upper lends well to gradient effects and in this particular model, purple goes from light to dark from toe to heel and completed with a speckled black midsole and white outsole. This will likely be a general release but you know your sneaker is hot when even a general release has this much buzz. There are release rumors of May 11th but nothing confirmed as of this writing. Will this be a cop or drop for you?
