It has already been a huge month of Kobe releases and it gets even better tomorrow with the release of the Kobe 8 Pit Viper 2, the “green glow” follow up to the original Pit Viper. Possessing unique heat-sensing systems to detect their prey in the dark, pit vipers are able to scope out and size up their opponents before they strike. The venomous viper was chosen for its visceral scale pattern, while its dominant predator instincts align with the dynamic fit and traction of the Kobe 8. The Kobe 8 Pit Viper 2 evolves the snake aesthetic from inspiration to photo-realism throughout the engineered mesh upper, which is designed to fit like an extension of your foot and offer 360 degrees of breathability. A thin, web rubber outsole provides lightweight durability and great traction for a quick first step as you strike.
The Nike Kobe 8 Pit Viper 2 drops tomorrow, Friday, December 20th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker and Footlocker.com (starting at 8am EST) for $140. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release and let us know what you think of the shoe in the comments.
