Nike Kobe 8 (Pit Viper)

Date: September 17 2013

The Kobe 9 can't be far off, but Nike have thrown out a brilliant distraction to sate us a little longer with this Kobe 8 'Pit Viper'. We've seen a veritable snake pit of snake-themed sneakers this year, and to be honest we're a bit tired of them, but at least it makes sense to get serpentine with the Black Mamba's signature shoe and, better yet, Nike have used a different treatment to the snakeskin replica leather we've seen everywhere. The snakeskin-styled fabric across the upper recalls the digi camo patterns we've also seen pop up this year, and the merging of purple and black looks downright mean while the minty lining and Swoosh brings a lot of beam power. We want to see these in the foot flesh 'cos they look pretty tight in the pics. October 5 is the date to ready your viper attack on these sneaks as soon as they hit shelves. Pics via Nice Kicks.
