Although the Nike Kobe 9 will be debuting in a few days, Nike Basketball has a few more versions of its current model set to release. Seen here is a more upgraded version of the Nike Kobe 8 dubbed the Kobe 8 “SS”. The model reveals a detailed upper with almost realistic scales that cover the toe box. If you remember, the new Kobe 8 shares almost the same colorway as the Kobe 6 “Venomenon” colorway which was one of the highlights of the series. Let us know if you’ll be scooping up a pair when they release.
