If any of you were wondering what the “SS” meant on the Kobe 8 “Christmas” that was released today, we finally have the answer – “Shedding Skin”. The textured upper makes the Mamba’s signature sneaker even more snakelike in appearance because of the protruding scales.
The “Shedding Snakeskin” is now an option on Nike iD. It acts as an independent layer to the other existing options – “Pit Viper”, “Chroma”, “Blue Coral Snake”, and “Solid”. Along with the “Shedding Snakeskin” option is the lacelock which is a first for any Nike Kobe. Check out the pair that we hooked up below and check out NikeID to get your own pair today.
