The much anticipated "Venice Beach" Kobe 8 by Nike Basketball will finally be hitting select retailers this holiday weekend.

Easily one of the most eyecatching colorways we've seen put on display over the Kobe 8, this weekend's release arrives covered in a number of vibrant tones inspired by Venice Beach. A combination of blue, red and yellow come together over the grey Engineered Mesh upper, while a smoked translucent outsole sits below.

The "Venice Beach" Nike Kobe 8 System is set to release this Saturday, May 25th at select Nike Basketball accounts nationwide.
