Like most other reptiles, a black mamba snake displays some iridescence. It’s still pretty much ‘black-on-black’, though, so Nike afforded themselves with some creative license when trying to come up with a colourway for these. The ‘Black Mamba’ Nike Air Force 25 Low is inspired by Kobe Bryant’s nickname-snake, hence the snakeskin overlay. Purple comes in on the laces and premium leather lining (Lakers), but what about the teal (Aqua)? Not necessarily a direct tie in to KB’s career, but they sure look dope. Cop the Black Mamba AF25 from Nike Basketball retailers like Kix-Files or on eBay.
Color: Black/Black-Grand Purple-Neptune Blue
