Nike Basketball – Year Of The Snake Pack

With this year being the Year of the Dragon, Kobe Bryant and the Kobe 8 System will get a big push from Nike this year with their 2013 Year Of The Snake pack.

Featured in the YOTS pack are three different pairs of the Kobe 8 System and the original sneaker made for Kobe Bryant in the Zoom Huarache 2K4.  The snake theme is very evident on throughout all the sneakers with…

One of the Kobe 8s from this set has been labeled as a EXT model is designed with off-court casual wear in mind.  With an upper constructed from a single piece, the Kobe 8 EXT uses Vac-Tech technology and lazering to achieve the clear look.

The Huarache 2K4 has always been associated with Kobe Bryant because it was originally going to be Bryant’s first signature sneaker with Nike until Kobe found himself in legal troubles that year and the name was changed.

This all releases alongside several different versions of the Air Force One including one labeled as part of the CMFT line which, like the Air Jordan II from 2011, take classic silhouettes and update them with modern cushioning with minimal retooling of the original sneaker.  A new Nike Sportswear Destroyer varsity jacket was also made to round out the Year Of The Snake collection.
