After months of anticipation Kobe fanatics can rejoice as the first clear look at his eighth signature shoe is here. This early sample of a rumored 2013 release gives us an idea of what to expect. Just like the previous four Kobe releases, the sneaker comes in a low cut styling and features Kobe's signature and logo on the tongue and heel area. This particular red suede and blue sole'd model is only set to be a lifestyle launch but we fully expect Nike to develop some sort of story behind it. Although the official debut of the Zoom Kobe 8 is still a few months away we're glad to finally see these clear cut images. For those interested the sample is currently up for grabs on eBay.
