2013 Year of the Snake is meant for steady progress and attention to detail, and the Kobe 8 System Year of the Snake Collection is certainly living up to that precedent. February brought us the Blue Coral Snake and Python YOTS releases and now, this Saturday, March 9th, the last release in the collection, the “Year of the Snake” colorway, will drop in stores and online. This newest Kobe 8 release features a mix of various red, black and grey tones meshed with snakeskin print, an engineered mesh upper, lunarlon cushioning and speckled accents and laces. The red colorway celebrates Chinese heritage, particularly the ‘Snake Sword’, torn straight from the pages of a well-known Kung Fu novel. Pick up a pair starting this Saturday, March 9th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker and Footlocker.com for $140.
