Nike unveils new black mamba-themed Kobe Bryant shoes


On Tuesday, Nike unveiled the brand new black mamba-themed Kobe Bryant sneakers. Unsurprisingly, the sneakers were designed with an actual black mamba in mind.

“Taking inspiration from this rich designer-athlete rapport and Bryant’s moniker ‘The Black Mamba,’ the third shoe in the Kobe 11 Muse Pack features subtle details reflecting the black mamba snake,” Nike wrote in a release.

The sneakers are a part of the Kobe 11 Muse Pack, which commemorates the impressive 60-point performance in his final NBA game.

Bryant tweeted out the press release unveiling his new shoes Tuesday afternoon.
