With an official unveiling last week, a released date and new images have arrived for the Nike Kobe VIII (8) EXT Red “Year of the Snake”.

This off-court version of the signature Kobe Bryant shoe comes in a red suede motif that pays homage to the Chinese New Year, but more interestingly rocks a seamless Vac-Tech upper with purple accents, a laser-etched Swoosh, Shuzuko branding, and other scale-inspired designs.

Slated for a January 25th release, check out detailed images below and stay tuned to Sneaker Files for more news and updates on this drop.
