In the past year we’ve seen all kind of colorways hit the Nike Kobe 8. From the “Area 72” to the “Python” to the “Black History Month” to the “Mambacurial” and many more, the Kobe 8 has had an amazing run over the past year. However, Saturday’s release of the Kobe 8 “Pit Viper” will mark a first for the “Black Mamba’s” eighth signature shoe from Nike. The “Pit Viper” features a snake aesthetic – directly influenced by Kobe’s snake inspired nickname. The most realistic snake pattern to ever hit a Kobe signature shoe will sport a purple and green-glow colorway. The Purple Dynasty/Green Glow-Raspberry Red colorway also has a deeper meaning behind it. Intentionally dark in color, the colorway shouts out the nocturnal lifestyle of the ultra-venomous pit viper.
The Nike Kobe 8 “Pit Viper” drops at House of Hoops by Foot Locker, Foot Locker and Footlocker.com (starting at 8am EDT) this Saturday, October 5th for $140. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release.
