NIKE KOBE 8 “WHAT THE KOBE” ?

It looks like more of 2 separate shoes to be honest, not sure how it really represents a “what the kobe” style shoe.  Usually it draws inspiration from many different releases through the year, I just don’t see the inspirations i guess.  Also, it seems very late in the game to be releasing another pair of Kobe 8s considering we have seen like 10 different colorways of the KD6 and 5 different colorways of the Lebron XI.  Still waiting to see the Kobe 9!  Thoughts on the shoe?
