The Year of the Snake has truly lived up to its billing, as Nike Basketball has created some incredible snake-inspired releases for The Mamba’s eighth signature shoe line. Now, as summer kicks into full gear, we get set to release the brand new “Milk Snake” inspired colorway this Saturday, July 27th.

Taking cues from the Lampropeltis triangulum, better known as the “Milk Snake,” this Kobe 8 version is fashioned with the white-black-red color pattern that makes the appearance of the snake so intimidating, like Kobe’s game. The scale-like mesh upper sits atop a white rubber outsole while a black heel counter and black inner lining take care of the back of the shoe. The lightweight and breathable materials make this an ideal summer time basketball shoe, built to help you maximize your game in the heat.

The Nike Kobe 8 System “Milk Snake” releases this Saturday, July 27th for $140 at House of Hoops by Foot Locker, Foot Locker, and online at Footlocker.com.  Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release.
