With the adjusted timing of the Kobe 9 launch, Nike has doubled up on some of the themed Kobe 8 releases. We've already seen a second 'Christmas' colorway of last year's game shoe — now another style inspired by the Chinese zodiac.
The 'Year of the Horse' Kobe 8 is decked out in bright red with a uniquely patterned mesh and synthetic upper. Yellow and blue complement the look throughout, including a translucent rubber outsole.
Look for the 'Year of the Horse' Kobe 8 to hit retailers beginning January 9.
