The Kobe Prelude 8 will release this Saturday 1/25. The Prelude 8 is one of the most anticipated of the whole Prelude Pack due to the success and popularity of the current Kobe 8 System shoe.
The multi-colored design has been labeled as a “Reflection” theme signifying the look back at Kobe’s previous year. The upper resembles a view of a reflection in water, highlighted by a green glow swoosh and silver heel counter. The sole is a red that fades to purple, a reminder of the Laker’s purple uniform color. The 2012-13 season was one of the most challenging and critical years of Kobe’s career, ending in injury, but not without success as the Lakers pulled together to qualify for a playoff run.

Over the past year, the Kobe 8 was praised for its comfort, minimalist design, and loud colorways. From the What the Kobe to the Court Purple Gradient versions of the Kobe 8, the Prelude 8 is a masterful combination of details resembling previous Kobe 8 general releases and special editions. The Prelude 8 may be the final opportunity to grab a special edition Kobe 8 on the eve of the release of the Kobe 9. You can expect the Kobe Prelude 8 to become a much sought after shoe for collectors and enthusiasts. Availability for the Kobe Prelude 8 will be very limited as all the Kobe Preludes have been. Loyal fans will certainly be ready to cop.
