Sneak-a-Peek: Nike Kobe 8 System – ‘Christmas’

Bryant scoring his 30,000th point in the Zoom Kobe 7 makes for the perfect transition for Kobe to go from the last season’s sneaker to the new Kobe 8 System.  In similar fashion to the last three years, when the Lakers play on Christmas there will be a special edition made just for the holiday.

The upper is constructed from the lightweight Engineered Mesh material knit in festive holiday colors.  A bright red is used on the laces, Swoosh branding, and Kobe Bryant signature on the heel counter.  The 2012 sneaker feature of the year is the speckled midsole, which is present on the ‘Christmas’ Kobe 8 System.

Look for Kobe Bryant to lace up the ‘Christmas’ Kobe 8 System on Christmas when the Los Angeles Lakers play the New York Knicks at the Staples Center.
