2013 is the Year of the Snake, and it’s also the inspiration for a new collection of Nike Basketball and Nike Sportswear shoes honoring both Kobe and the Chinese zodiac.

Representing Kobe’s bold and aggressive style on the court, the Kobe 8 System Year of the Snake special edition features Nike engineered mesh for the first time for an ultra-lightweight fit, and a full-length Lunarlon midsole for lightweight, low-profile cushioning and stability. The red colorway symbolizes danger and the destructive power of Kobe’s speed.
