Release Reminder – Nike Kobe 8 System “Taipan”

While Kevin Durant and LeBron James have moved on to the next numbered models of their signature shoes, Nike Basketball is not ready to let the Kobe 8 go just yet as the newest colorway in the series, the System “Taipan” makes its way into stores this weekend. Fierce, fast-moving and rare, the Inland Taipan snake is considered to be one of the most venomous in the world and serves as the inspiration for this latest colorway.

Designed for one of the most potent offensive forces in the game, the shoe features a Taipan resembling midsole that fades from dark navy to yellow with hints of orange spots, springy cushioning and 360 degrees of breathability. An engineered mesh upper provides a dynamic, ultra-light fit that allows you burst by your defender and stop on a dime in transition. Built for tenacious traction, the Kobe 8 System’s webbed rubber outsole provides superior court feel and fuels lightning-fast cuts. With Tiger print and a mix of deep royal, orange and yellow colors, the Kobe 8 System “Taipan” is truly one of the most unique Kobe 8 kicks we’ve seen to date. Pick a pair starting Saturday, September 7th in stores and online (starting at 8:00 a.m. EDT) for $140. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release.
