From the box to the tech, here's a detailed look at the upcoming "Mambacurial" Nike Kobe 8 System.
Inspired by Nike's flagship soccer boot, the Mercurial Vapor IX, Kobe's sig is decked out in pink and plum with black and bright green accents. Borrowed from the boot is a leather lining, large Swoosh branding on the toebox, 'NIKE' lettering on the medial side and "Mambacurial" notation on the backside of the tongue. The shoe rests atop a graphic-revealing translucent green rubber outsole.
No official release date at the moment for "Mambacurials," but we'll be sure to update you as soon as we hear something.
