Kobe and the Lakers might already be done for the season, but Nike Basketball is still busy introducing new looks for the innovative Kobe 8 System.

Initially seen on Kobe's feet several times on the road during the regular season, Nike Basketball went with a non-traditional purple dominated look to match the Lakers' road uniforms. A combination of purple hues take over the Engineered Mesh upper,  working together with grey over the Swoosh, tongue Shozoku logos and outsole below.

The 'Court Purple' Nike Kobe 8 System is set to release May 11th at Nike Basketball accounts nationwide.
