Nike Kobe 8 Pit Viper

This has been a great summer for Kobe Bryant — on the books, you wouldn’t think so. Coming off of a shuddering injury in last season’s playoffs, you’d think Kobe’s career would fade, would fall off of the map, or he’d quit. However, this summer he’s been working harder than ever to make a comeback of epic proportions.

Tag-teaming along with Bryant is, of course, that brand from Beaverton. Inventively inspired by “Black Mamba,” the Nike Kobe 8 Pit Viper is the most realistic snake pattern to ever hit a Kobe signature shoe. The sneaker boasts a purple Engineered Mesh upper while Green Glow adorns the lining and branding, in addition to a dark set of colors which nod to the nocturnal lifestyle of the ultra-venomous pit viper.

Releases online only on Saturday.
