Releases for the Kobe 8 have slowed down a bit in the last couple of months, but the shoe is ready to strike again in arguably one of its best looks yet with the upcoming "Pit Viper" in 'Purple Dynasty/Green Glow-Raspberry Red'. 

This viper-skinned Kobe 8 from Nike Basketball receives a plum and dark purple upper nicely accented with minty Green Glow, while a grey outsole sits below.  Get your best look yet with official photos from Nike below, and expect them at retail next month on 10/5/2013.
