Did the just-unveiled “Pit Viper” design option for the NIKEiD Kobe 8 not quite accomplish the color and style you were hoping for? Worry not, it looks like the non-iD Nike Kobe 8 Pit Viper release date is officially on the books, for real this time!, presuming Foot Locker isn’t in the habit of passing along packs of lies. (And really, I’m not sure how it would benefit them in this case.)
The shoe, which sports a purple snakeskin-inspired print throughout the Engineered Mesh upper, contrasted by mint Swoosh and inner-lining, will land on shelves October 5, according to FL.
We’ll bring you official photos and info as we receive them, but start targeting 10/5 in the meantime.
