With the multi-colored upper being a major focus of the Kobe 8 aesthetic, we can expect a number of unique and stunning colorways that come to live via the snake-skin inspired upper. Even in the inline Black/Sulfur colorway has some interesting visual flair to it, but during the official unveiling of the Kobe 8 last week, Nike placed an emphasis on an upcoming Olive/Black/Red colorway officially dubbed the ‘Python’. These have been confirmed for a release in China on January 12th, followed by a North America release on February 2nd, so check out the full shot of this upcoming snake-inspired Kobe shoe and stay tuned for more of the Kobe 8 as we approach the official release date later this month.
Can't wait to get these. I'm interested to see what other snake-inspired designs nike can come up with for the Year of the Snake.
