The Nike Zoom Kobe 8 is hitting Nikeid today, giving consumers a chance to add their own personal flavor to the latest in the Kobe line.
However, the shoe will not be available for purchase until December 20. For the next two weeks, NikeiD will provide a preview experience, letting people mess around with different options of the sneaker and come the 20th, they will be able to make a purchase of their saved designs.
Here’s the official rundown of the Kobe 8 System NikeiD features:
1. Choose Your System
Featuring four midsole options, consumers can choose Lunarlon cushioning for a soft yet responsive ride, an orthotic-ready Nike Zoom insert which is super-thin and sits lower to the ground than traditional midsole inserts. And for players who want to track and measure their game with Nike+ Basketball, there are two additional midsole options: the KOBE+ 8 Sport Pack midsole (which comes bundled with the Nike+ Sport Kit) or the Nike+ ready midsole for players who previously purchased the Nike+ Sport Kit (sold separately).
2. Elevate Your style
Color combinations on the graphic snakeskin print upper range from pink flash, volt to pine and poison green, providing options to consumers for a truly unique and bold look.
3. Create Your Edition
Consumers can add their name, number and colors to hook up with their personalized identity.
Starting December 4, 2012, consumers can design, save and share their KOBE 8 SYSTEM shoes at NIKEiD.com. Beginning December 20, consumers can purchase their designs at NIKEiD.com on their desktop PCs, through their mobile device, and within select NIKE Stores.
