Joining the Nike Kobe 7 as the only shoes from the Nike Kobe Black Mamba Pack that are done in a color other than white, grey or black is the Nike Kobe 8.

The Nike Kobe 8 from the Black Mamba Pack comes in a Dark Raisin colorway which is undoubtedly the pair that hits closest to home for any Lakers fans due to the purple upper. The Kobe 8 uses an engineered mesh upper making it lightweight and breatheable and lunar cushioning making it comfortable. Many people also hold the Kobe 8 in high regard as one of their favorite silhouettes out of the entire Kobe line.

Take a look at the official images above and look to purchase the Nike Kobe 8 Black Mamba on April 8th for $200. You can also stay up to date with the entire collection by visiting our Nike Kobe Black Mamba Pack launch page for the latest images and release information.

Author’s Take

Everyone who I know that I owns a pair of Kobe 8s always talks about how comfortable they are. I’ve never tried on a pair personally but if it has lunarlon cushioning I can already imagine. When I see this colorway this is all I can think of though.



Anybody else think of the California Raisin cartoons?
