It's rare to see a player's personal edition shoe released. But that's exactly what Nike is doing on Saturday, May 11th with the Kobe 8 System ‘Purple Platinum’.
Kobe Bryant's Los Angeles Lakers are already eliminated from the playoffs and he's recovering from surgery but during the season he wore a colorway of this sneaker.
For starters, the shoe weighs less than 10 ounces. It also features a 90% mesh upper which gives your feet great breathability. And it features a full Lunarlon cushioning.
You pick up your pair online at the Nike Store or Nike Basketball retailers this Saturday, May 11.
