Snakes may be known for burrowing into the ground to brumate during the colder weather however "the Black Mamba" is looking to bring 'em out by way of the upcoming Nike Kobe IX Elite High EXT QS "Snakeskin" release.

With a name that is about as long as an python to boot, this Nike Kobe IX Elite High EXT QS is a luxurious new take on his basketball bootie and it features a full snake upper with golden accents on the heel and tongue. Hits of black snake their way up from ankle to heel before hitting the outsole and tongue as well.

If you are trying to catch a pair they're releasing stateside in early November but UK retailer Footpatrol will get them in the next few days.
