The Air Jordan 8 Kobe was part of the Air Jordan 3/8 Kobe Pack that was given to friends and family-only back in 2016. This Air Jordan 8 severed as a celebration to Kobe Bryant’s 20 years in the NBA.
Modeled after the player exclusive the Kobe Bryant wore during the 2002-03 season, a time where he was a sneaker free agent. During that stretch he flirted with Jordan Brand, Nike and even Reebok, before taking his talents to Nike and the rest is history.
Jordan Brand also designed two special edition sets that included models 1-30 comprised of White versions and the other in Black. Both the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 8 from the sets were highlighted in Los Angeles Lakers colors.
Even though these never released, where do the Air Jordan 8 “Kobe” colorway rank amongst other classic Air Jordan 8 releases?
Those looking to own a pair can find sizes available via Stadium Goods and eBay.
Release Date: Spring 2016
