With Kobe Bryant hinting at a return later this week, it’s safe to say that we will most likely see the Mamba on the court for the Lakers Christmas Day matchup against the Miami Heat. Should we see Kobe on that day, he also may be whipping out the Nike Kobe 8 System SS “Christmas”. A new and radical approach to the Kobe 8, the Kobe 8 SS features raised rubber “scales” on the upper done in Silver. The Silver “scales” are surrounded by Black, Gold, and Green. Although Nike has not confirmed a release date, we expect to see these on 12/26. Check out more below.
