First introduced to us in mid-March, here's an on-foot look at the upcoming "Superhero" Nike Kobe 8 System Elite.

Inspired by the pit viper snake and its heat-sensing vision, the shoe is decked out in Poison Green with blackened and hyper blue details. Swoosh branding flanks the shoe and Kobe's logo appears on the tongue.

For players, tech features include a carbon fiber heel clip, Dynamic Flywire, articulated foam tongue, Kevlar aramid laces, Phylon midsole and Zoom cushioning.

Releasing Saturday, April 27 for $200. Enjoy this shot courtesy of SC Forum member 901prince.
