It’s like all the stars are aligning for Nike and Kobe Bryant in 2013. The ‘Year of the Snake’ closes out the full cycle of twelve after Nike first embarked upon these annual collections with the Horse in 2002, and with Kobe Bryant’s ‘Black Mamba’ being the perfect platform to launch the collection, it’s clear that Nike Basketball and Sportswear have been preparing for this monumental occasion. Releasing in China on January 18th, the Nike Kobe 8 “Black Mamba” features a luxurious black snake print on a leather-appointed upper, providing an attitude of class and ferocity in one bite. In addition, the Swoosh appears to be etched out, giving it a focus of Sportswear much like LeBron’s ‘Cork’ release does. Check out the new angles just below and let us know if the Nike Kobe 8 ‘Black Mamba’ Year of the Snake is a must-have for you, and be sure to keep in tune with Sneaker News for more updates on a stateside release.
Love em but here in STL ill be able to cop cause they don't cop Kobes like that here unless its a "What The Kobe" or "Xmas Kobe" type deal! So if these aren't too hyped up I should be good to let em sit for a few weeks & maybe make it to February and cop the more crazier releases!
Those Kobe 8s Straight crack!! I begining to think the Kobe 8 model could be the best Kobes after the 6s
These are crazy and how do people always have stuff like this before they drop. I need some hook ups. I gotta a twitter. I'll post pics of anything anyone gives me. I'll post some Li Ning stuff if I have to.
