The first images of the Kobe 8 Protro Triple White have circled online, with a rumoured released date of 24th August this year, to celebrate Kobe Day.
Designed by Eric Avar and first released for the 2012-13 season and much lik eht Kobe 7, the Kobe 8 also debuted in a "System" version. It was famously the shoe he wore when he tore his achilles and walked to the free-throw lie to hit two clutch free throws on one leg.
The SneakerBarDetroit were one of the first to cover the story and said:
"Dressed in an all-White color blocking. This offering of the the Kobe 8 Protro comes constructed with an engineered mesh upper, no-sew synthetic overlays and pebble-grain leather around the collar and heels.
Other details includes embroidered Swooshes and Kobe logos on the tongues with a plastic heel counter for stability and Black midfoot shank plate. A full-length Lunarlon midsole and Zoom Air cushioning completes the design. The shoes will also be available in mens, grade school, and preschool sizing."
