Offspring loves a Nike collaboration and we are pleased to see the release of the new
Nike Kobe 8 NSW Lifestyle ‘Mamba’, the collaboration with world famous basketball
player Kobe Bryant.
The style is aptly named ‘Mamba’ for not only its scaly appearance
but the star’s on court nickname of ‘Black Mamba’.
The style sees basketball meet lifestyle and is a sleek design that sits apart
from the usual basketball sneaker. Sporting a “gorge” green and black colour
way with a unique matte woven style snakeskin pattern, the textured, almost fur-like
scales are broken up with a finely stitched black suede panels and tongue.
The serpentine upper sits on an off-white outsole, thick wax laces and is finished off
with Kobe Bryant’s iconic ‘Sheath’ logo inspired from that of a Samurai sword to
symbolize raw talent, his 5 times world champion titles will testify to that.
