We continue to preview this year's All-Star footwear with yet another look at the "Area 72" Kobe 8+ by Nike Basketball.

The extraterrestrial-inspired Kobe 8 features a graphic-printed Engineered Mesh build, covered in a vibrant combination of red and yellow. A unique print takes over the collar in aqua, matching the laces and Swoosh logos on Kobe's "Area 72" kicks.

The All-Star Kobe 8 also marks the debut of Nike+ technology on the Kobe 8 by Nike Basketball. A release is scheduled for February 15th for both the Sport Pack at $280, and the regular Nike+ version at $195.
