VIDEO: Skee Locker – Kobe 8 Edition EXT, All Star, Duke, & DJ Skee Zoom 4 Exclusive

Nike Kobe Zoom 8 EXT

First up, DJ Skee takes a look at the Nike Zoom Kobe 8 EXT.  This particular pair comes in a smooth upper University Red suede color way with Court Purple accents on the inside and the outer sole.  The popular Kobe model has a nice lifestyle twist as its primary purpose is more concerned with style and appealing aesthetics rather than performance on the court.  Celebrating the Chinese New Year theme of the year of the snake, the sneaker features hints of gold along the shoe’s embroidered Nike swoosh, Shozoku tongue and heel tab logo, and lace tips.  The sneaker is light weight and maintains quality features for added support like the mid-foot carbon fiber shank plate.

Nike Kobe Zoom 8 “Area 72” All-Star

The next popular pair of kicks DJ Skee shares with sneaker heads is the Nike Kobe Zoom 8 “Area 72” All-Star’s.  Loud and in your face, the alien themed sneakers are composed of a bright and total crimson color way with Spirit Turquoise accents.  Added details such as the alien-like symbols found on the sneaker’s swoosh, orange leather along the inner heel, and crimson Kobe signature on the outer heel make it easy to understand why these beauties are highly sought after.  Not to be forgotten, the sock lining and inner sole stay true to the intergalactic “Area 72” theme and sport vibrant space-like imagery.  The mid sole of the shoes come in white and showcases somewhat of a rugged texture.  A nice carbon fiber plate can also be found along the mid-foot of the sole for added foot support.

Nike Kobe Zoom 8 Duke Edition

Showcasing an exclusive Duke player color way, DJ Skee next sets his sights on the Kobe Nike Zoom 8.  The blue devils were blessed with a nice black and white color way that features hints of the team’s signature blue along the shoe’s midsole, inner lining and heel clip.  For added detail, Duke’s iron “D” covers the tongue of the shoe in white while the traditional Shozoku logo is located on the outer heel next to Kobe’s signature.  The upper portion of the sneaker is also composed of a very nice black camo that truly compliments this Duke exclusive color way the most.

Nike Zoom 4 Duke Edition (DJ Skee Exclusive)

Continuing with this episode’s Kobe/NCAA Tournament theme, DJ Skee saves the best for last with a special pair of Nike Kobe Zoom 4 Duke Editions.  Skee shares with sneaker heads a pair of exclusive game worn Zoom 4’s that happen to be signed by the entire Duke team.  Not available to the public for retail purchase, the home color way comes in a primarily white upper with eye catching blue and black accents.  The infamous Duke iron “D” can be found on the back of the heel just above Kobe’s 24 logo which is embedded within a black crock material along the heel clip.  Sporting speckled blue laces, a black bottom sole, and black Nike swoosh’s with blue trimming these exclusives are easily embraced by sneaker enthusiasts as certified heat.

The extra glittery and spacey details that went into making these are sure to catch eyes and already are considered a must have amongst sneaker enthusiasts.

Nike Kevin Durant V (5) has a Liquid Lime, Crimson and Turquoise color way, the “Area 72” version of Durant’s V signature model is turning heads with its unique alien theme. The extraterrestrial features of the shoe can be seen from the Nike swoosh which sports a scaly appearance, the galaxy artwork on the tongue and inner sole, and certain areas such as the rear heel of the shoe mimic an alien skin type of theme. Finally, the “Area 72” version of Kevin Durant’s logo on the tongue of the shoe pulls everything together for a final alien like touch.

Nike Barkley Posite Max follows the spacey alien theme of the “Area 72” pack heavy. With a very cool glow in the dark sole, the Posite’s are also constructed of 3M material which covers the upper portion of the sneaker along with a nice reflection feature for added detail. Speckled artwork can be found across the shoe’s design from its laces, rear bottom purple air bubble, and upper portion which appears to be designed with black and white space-like imagery. The back of the shoe sports the official Charles Barkley logo in purple and the bottom of the sneakers reads “model” on one foot while the other reads “not a role model”. Finally, the shoe displays the fan favorite Ray Gun logo across each tongue.
