PHOTOS: First Look At Nike Kobe 8 Kay Yow Shoes

October is national Breast Cancer Awareness month. The NFL does its job at raising awareness by having its players wear cleats, gloves and other accessories with their uniforms — the referees were even using pink flags this past Sunday.

While the NBA doesn’t follow suit with the league just getting underway during the month, players like Kobe Bryant are showing their support by releasing new colorways of their respective shoes. Bean and Nike have partnered with the Kay Yow Cancer fund to craft a new colorway of his Kobe 8s. Kobe’s wife posted these on her instagram account. While there is no release date as of yet, you can get your first glance at them in the photo below.
