Nike Vault at Staples Center in Los Angeles has given us some of the dopest in-store installations and special edition packaging Nike Basketball has ever offered. Given its location, it’s not a huge shock that much of this hoopla is centered around Kobe Bryant and this latest surprise is a worthy successor to the dope humidor box that dropped with the Zoom Kobe V ‘5 Rings’. Tomorrow will see the early release of the Nike Zoom Kobe VI ‘Rice’ and in addition to dropping a day earlier than everywhere else, these high school player exclusives will come in a special ‘Snake Crate’ package. The most elaborate box this side of a wicker basket with snake charmer in tow, you’ll get a wooden crate with rope handle that warns you of the power contained within. Check out some more pics of the crate from kicksologist after the jump and get a pair of the ZK6 Rice in the plain old black Kobe box now on eBay.
