This weekend will see a handful of ‘Year of the Snake’ styles from Nike hit shelves-the group comprised of the Nike Kobe 8 and the Nike Air Force 1 Low. Of course the former has two separate silhouettes releasing, both picking up the Nike Kobe 8 EXT designation (You’ll recall that the Nike LeBron X ‘Cork’ also came with that three letter addition). Take a look at the Nike Kobe 8 EXT ‘Year of the Snake’ pairs along with the Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Year of the Snake’ in better detail right after the jump and watch for them to impact at retailers like NJ’s Sneaker Lounge this Saturday, March 9th. Also, stay tuned for the arrival of other styles in the same vein like the Nike Zoom Huarache 2k4 and the Nike Air Force 1 High.

The Zoom Kobe line went full ‘Snake’ with the Zoom Kobe VI and the faux snake-skin shell upper, but what we’ve really been waiting for is a Kobe release like this. It was only a matter of waiting for 2013 when the ‘Year of the Snake’ gave Nike Basketball all the opportunity to extend its reach to the limits of design, and this high-grade premium release with a black snakeskin upper, etched Swoosh and Kobe logo on the heel, and seamless upper encapsulate the attitude of Kobe’s career and personality as a refined predator with a flair for style. This first ‘Year of the Snake’ release is scheduled to hit stores this weekend in China, so check out the extra images below and let us know if this is the best Kobe release yet.
