Following last week's official unveiling, today's news brings us an all around look at the so far well received "Year of the Snake" Kobe 8 EXT by Nike Sportswear.

The off-court version of the Kobe 8 by Nike Sportswear puts to use a rich premium suede throughout their entire upper in red, topped with laser-etched Swoosh branding and Kobe Shozoku logos. The predominantly red colorway is accented nicely with hits of purple along the sockliner and outsole below.

The "Year of the Snake" Nike Kobe 8 EXT is expected to hit select Nike Sportswear accounts in limited quantities on January 25th.
