We're provided with another look at the upcoming Mercurial IX soccer boot-inspired Kobe 8 by Nike Basketball.

The unique and already much anticipated Kobe 8 features swooping toe Swoosh logos, 'NIKE' lettering across the medial heel and a Red Plum/Electric Green-Pink Flash color scheme all inspired by the Mercurual IX soccer boot. Other clean touches include 'Mambacurial' on the inner tongue and a unique graphic seen through the translucent outsole below.
