Nike Kobe 8 SS “Skin Removed”

Check this out, the Nike Kobe 8 SS Christmas without the plastic / rubber cover.  When I got mine i took picture of these on IG because i was surprised the cover wasn’t fused to the upper, just attached at the seams so I was waiting to see an image of these with the skin removed.  thoughts?  I like the way it looks both ways, would have been cool if it was actually removable.
