Just a few days after we detailed Kobe Bryant‘s eighth signature sneaker model with Nike found here, the two provide a closer look at the rumored “Python” color variation. Designed for the upcoming Year of the Snake from the Chinese Zodiac, the snakeskin-styled, Nike Engineered Mesh upper contains heavy copper accents and a bold red Swoosh atop a speckled Lunarlon midsole. Black Mamba’s “Python” 8 continues with red-dotted laces, a red removable SYSTEM, and black lining all of which serving as an integral element in becoming the lightest and most technologically-advanced Kobe model to date. The “Python” version will be launching in China on January 12 of next year followed by a North American release on February 2.
