Nike Kobe 8 “Year of the Snake” Collection

Nike Kobe 8 "Year of the Snake" Black


Kobe Bryant?s Black Mamba moniker lends itself well to the ?Year of the Snake? sneaker series. Three makeups of the Nike Kobe 8 take on the title, sporting scaly black, red suede, and red camo dressed uppers. The first pair seen is built for the hardwood, relying on snake print and black leather. The second take is designed for casual wear, set to suede and styled seamlessly. Lastly, a third pair dons Lunarlon and Engineered Mesh composition for System tagging. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for official release dates.

  1. Considering only third colorway has a plastic heel counter, I would consider the first two as “off-court” variants.

  2. the black scales and the camo red are dope. i hope the red is the ASG..that is sick…nuff said!! i really hope the red becomes the all star..would make sense in colors per past kb asg kix. we shall see i guess. the black scales reminds me of a black out vi which is definitely a good look!

  3. The black pair are the best, but the rest sucks. Especially looking at the fact you’d think Nike would go all out, for a signature sneaker, of a man nicknamed AFTER an actual snake.

  4. also do the black and red snakeskin ones have the exact same features as the normal original kobe 8 systems
