In the absence of Kobe Bryant, not only are the Lakers missing out on their key player, but sneakerheads are also missing out on some great PEs. This colorway of the Nike Kobe 8 seems to be the simplest design displayed on the sneaker. The Kobe 8’s have been notorious this year for their crazy colorways and designs, but this version of the sneaker showcases a plain White base with Lakers Purple and Gold accented on the lining and insole. Some speckling on the midsole is the furthest this design goes. Stay tuned as Kobe slowly makes his return to the NBA, and back into the sneaker world as well.
