A striking edition, the “Mambacurial” Nike Zoom Kobe 8 was only just announced but is already causing waves. We brought you the first images yesterday, and today we’re back with a better look. Featuring a Red Plum/Pink Flash upper with Electric Green accents, the “Mambacurial” draws inspiration from a Nike soccer cleat, but this pair leaves the spikes behind in favor of a classic outsole perfect for the hardwood. With an estimated release date of “Summer” 2013, there is clearly more information to come. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for play by play announcements on this summer stunner. More photos after the jump.
