The Nike Kobe 8 System ‘Pit Viper’ is described as the first Kobe 8 to evolve snake aesthetic from inspiration to photo-realism. With its visceral scale pattern, the venomous viper was chosen for this pair.
Purple and Green Glow were selected to represent the pit viper’s nocturnal nature. Its dominant predator instincts align with the dynamic fit and traction of the Kobe 8.
These new Kobe Bryant shoes will release here this Saturday, October 5. Enjoy a detailed preview below.
