April 13th should be known as Kobe Day. Yesterday marked exactly one year since Kobe Bryant’s final NBA game, a legendary 60-point performance that closed one of the greatest careers in sports history. In honor of the Black Mamba, here’s a new look at the Air Jordan 8 “Kobe” that served as half of the friends and family-only pack Jordan Brand distributed in 2016. The shoe is modeled after the player exclusive Kobe wore during the 2002-03 season, a stretch where he wasn’t with adidas any longer yet hadn’t signed with Nike. This sneaker free agent period saw Kobe in Nike, Jordan Brand, and Reebok as he took full advantage of his contract-free status. Air Jordan 8 “Kobe” is rare but you can catch pairs popping up at select spots like Stadium Goods.
