“Yo dawg, I heard you like pythons, so…”
The recently released (and upcoming) ‘Python’ colorway of the Nike Kobe 8 sparked plenty of interest when we were first shown this awesome concept back in December. With the shoes already dropping in Asia and a release just two days away, some Kobe fans have gone the extra mile with presenting their pick-ups in unique fashion, although we’ve probably never come across anything as creative (and deadly) like this. One of the Black Mamba’s biggest fans decided to snap a few kicks showing off his Nike Kobe 8 ‘Python’ and his cold-blooded pal; this seriously raises the bar for sneaker photography, so we won’t be fully impressed from here on out until we see a few snaps of the Air Jordan III Retro ’88 and a fully-grown elephant. Check out the images below and if you’d like to create your own double-snake set-up, visiting your local pet shop and cop a pair of the shoes on the wide release date of February 6th – or right now on eBay.
