When the prototype of Kobe Bryant’s latest Nike Kobe 8 surfaced, it received some mixed reviews. Most people wasn’t feeling the new Swoosh location from the prototype version. A sample pair of the Kobe 8′s just surfaced, and it looks like there has been a few changes made. It looks like this Lifestyle version is constructed from nubuck/suede materials instead of the typical Hyperfuse or Flywire. What looks to stay the same is the outsole tooling that has a similar look to the Kobe 7.
