Video: Kobe Debuts Kobe VIII System With Interview

Last Saturday, Kobe Bryant debuted his new Nike Kobe VIII System shoe in Venice Beach. Onlookers got a chance to test out the shoe through a basketball obstacle course. Then, the man, the Black Mamba himself showed up to a sea of anxiously awaiting fans.

Four years ago, Kobe’s shoe was 17.6 ounces, now the Kobe VIII System weighs in at 9.6. It is the lightest, lowest to the ground Kobe yet. The snakeskin design was Kobe Bryant’s inspiration. Bryant chatted with Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters about his favorite shoe growing up (which he still has in his closet). Plus, Kobe tells us about his “sneaker head” tendencies.
