The Nike Air Force 1 High Kobe Pack — two AF1’s inspired by the Black Mamba (and the black mamba) — hit retailers this weekend and yep, it’s an absolute instant-classic.
Though neither is explicitly Kobe-esque, they both are sure to turn heads and do feature a bit of snake styling. The summit white/matte silver pair goes for a light color that features subtle tonal patterning over the entire upper, with grey piping complementing that pattern nicely and solid Swoosh, midsole and laces finishing off the look.
Meanwhile the darker pair is an absolute monster, with a distressed purple upper, brighter purple piping and a snakeskin-style Swoosh and heel-tab, more overtly announcing its Mamba-ness. Both are available now at House of Hoops and FootLocker.com.
