Nike Releasing Commemorative Kobe ‘Black Mamba’ Air Force 1

Kobe Bryant‘s professional basketball career officially ended in April 2016…but the game is forever with the Mamba. And as both Kobe’s no. 8 and no. 24 go into the rafters in Staples Center Monday at halftime, we’re treated to a tip-off delight as the Swoosh has a limited Air Force 1 Low commemorating all of Kobe’s greatness. Equipped with a reptilian leather mimicking the black mamba snake itself, the model is adorned with Lakers gold…Kobe’s eight championships between the NBA and Italy and his 8 and 24 on the heel.

The ‘Black Mamba’ Air Force 1 goes live approximately at 10:30 pm EST/7:30 pm PST on Nikestore.
