In late 2012, Nike Basketball began to roll out a few colorways of Kobe Bryant's eighth signature sneaker. He unveiled two pairs in the black/sulfur and Christmas joints late in the year and surprised many when he broke out Player Exclusive versions of his latest model. The Black Mamba was seen in "Home" and "Away" versions of the Kobe 8 and here we get a closer look at the "Home" edition. It features a lightly-tinted grey Engineered Mesh upper along with the combination of a purple swoosh and yellow midsole, reminiscent of that classic Lakers look and feel. They have been deemed PEs for now with no indication that they'll ever release. Check back with SneakerWatch for more info on these. Image: waverder on NT
