You already know about Kobe Bryant and his venomous play on the court. His name, the black mamba, is due to the sharp and deadly style of play he exhibits on the night in and night out. For this reason Nike Basketball has taken to naming and likening pairs of his kicks after deadly snakes like the Nike Kobe 8 “Red Boa” , or the Nike Kobe 8 “Python”. This snake in particular, the pit viper, is very dope in that it can sense its prey’s size and weakness due to infrared sensors in the pits by its nose. You could make a good case that Kobe does the same (sans the pits of course). But enough of that, the kicks are immaculate. Sneakerheads have called them the best pair of Kobe 8s to date. They feature a colorway not seen on too many shoes. And for that matter we have a SneakerFits.

The kicks feature some great colors that aren’t out there on a bunch of sneaks. They’re stunning with purple, spots of navy and grey, and pop with the turquoise blueish green.This could bode rather hard outfit wise, but we have something for you that matches colors on the left, and neutral on the right. So on the left we went with the normal dark wash jeans. They’re pretty much a staple in most peoples’ wardrobe. You need a pair. For the shirt we found one that matched rather well. The tee is a neutral grey with coloring like the kicks. For the hat we also found one that matched the turquoise in the kicks.

For the right side we toned it down, but the dopeness remained. Up top we went with an extremely dope raglan/baseball shirt. Raglans are perfect for this weather. The three quarter length sleeves work great with the changing of the season. Down low we kept it black. To tie all the black to the kicks we found a hat with purple that matched well. This in turn ties the outfit together, and all the black gives the shoes extra pop on the contrast. And there you have it. Tag #sneakerfits on what you put on. This weekend is major in kicks so make sure you pick something up!
