Ja Morant’s Nike Kobe 8 Shoes

One of the high heat Nike Basketball sneakers that Ja Morant rocked in 2020 was the Nike Kobe 8.

The Kobe 8 was another example of the revolutionary footwear Kobe strived for, providing an even lighter and faster shoe than past low-top basketball sneakers. This was done via weight-shaving Engineered Mesh on the upper, which still maintained support via a Hyperfuse backing. The Kobe 8 also introduced a drop-in Lunarlon midsole that was comfortable to the point that this feature was re-used on future Kobe designs.

Ja laced up the “What The” colorway even in preseason games in 2020.

You can find the Nike Kobe 8 at StockX, GOAT, Stadium Goods, and Flight Club.
