Nick Young Laces Up in the NIKEiD Nike Kobe 8 SS PE

In last night’s home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young brought out some heat with the new Kobe 8 SS from NIKEiD’s PE program. In a colorway matching the Lakers’ purple and gold, young went with an all-yellow base complemented by a speckled midsole and purple accents. Young added the ‘Shedding Skin’ option on the NikeiD version of the Kobe 8.
