Color combinations on the upper graphic range from Tour Yellow and Volt to Pine and Poison Green. Choose one for a truly personalized and bold look.
Multiple cushioning options provide customized comfort on the court. Choose Lunarlon cushioning for a soft yet responsive ride, or, for use with orthotics, opt for the orthotic-ready Nike Zoom insert. It's super-thin and sits lower to the ground than traditional midsole inserts, making it easy and comfortable to wear with orthotics. To track and measure your game with Nike+ Basketball, choose the KOBE+ 8 Sport Pack midsole.
In order to track and measure your game, you need the KOBE+ 8 Sport Pack midsole OR the KOBE+ 8 midsole and the Nike+ Sport Kit (sold separately). If you already have the Nike+ Sport Kit or another Nike+ basketball shoe, choose the KOBE+ 8 midsole.
The solid and translucent rubber outsoles grip the ground during hard cuts and sprints to the hoop. If you're an indoor player, choose the solid outsole for better gym-floor traction. If you spend most of your time on the blacktop, opt for the XDR (extra-durable rubber) outsole, designed specifically for outdoor play.
The dynamic upper is made of 90 percent mesh for 360 degrees of breathability, and it's tightly woven for strength and flex, creating a lightweight fit that bends naturally with the foot.
Layers of outsole rubber have been stripped away for a lightweight, minimal and low-to-the-ground feel without sacrificing the aggressive traction required for basketball's quick bursts and sudden changes of direction.
The graphic on the heel is part of Kobe's signature sheath logo, designed to line up with the heel graphic on the Kobe Elite sock and form the full sheath logo. A bright, knit-in pattern takes inspiration from Kobe's Black Mamba moniker and comes to life on the shoe's upper.
The KOBE+ 8 System Sport Pack tracks your highest jump, average jump height and total jumps per game, along with your steps per second, quickest moments and more—and then converts your activity to NikeFuel points.

Nike ZoomNike Zoom cushioning is part of the Nike Air family, and—like its siblings—it’s lightweight and durable. Because Nike Zoom cushioning is incredibly thin, it brings the foot closer to the ground and enhances stability, especially during quick cuts and multi-directional movements. After impact, the tightly stretched fibers inside the pressurized air unit quickly bounce back into shape, providing a super-responsive feel and improved awareness of the surface you’re playing on.
Nike+ Basketball shoes include two types of sensors to capture your movement and activity. Nike+ Pressure Sensors are embedded in the midsole and track your balance and stability, while Nike+ Sport Sensors are removable, rechargeable and track movements like jumps and steps. The sensors calculate your stats and sync directly to the Nike+ Basketball app on your compatible Apple iOS device (iPhone ® mobile digital device and others) using Bluetooth version 4.0, a low-energy technology.

Lunarlon CushioningLunarlon cushioning features a soft, yet resilient foam core encased within a supportive foam carrier for lightweight, ultra-plush cushioning, springy response and support. This innovative foam, invented at Nike and 30 percent lighter than traditional Phylon, allows the force of impact to be more evenly distributed and helps reduce painful pressure points on your foot.
