In what Nike is characterizing as a photo-realist representation of the pit viper, it has hooked up the latest edition of the Kobe 8. The color palette is drawn from the nocturnal predator in a blend of purple and dark red with green glow accents. The sneaker is currently available through Bern based Titolo and will be available starting at 8AM BST / 9AM CET through Nike.com.
Those in the States can find the kicks through Nike.com starting at 8AM EDT on Saturday morning.
If you can’t find the kicks elsewhere, hit eBay.
