We’ve seen trailers of the Black Mamba, a film by Robert Rodriguez. We’ve seen a clip about ophidiophobia but what about the shoe these clips promote? Sneakernews provided an insight into Nike Zoom Kove VI event held at Nike vault at the Staples Center, Los Angeles. The event did not just preview the trailer 2 for the Black Mamba feature film but also introduced a Kobe VI sneakers in different colorways. One of the sweetest styles presented is the Black, White and Varsity Red sneaker with the black and metallic “snake” upper representing the Black Mamba.

The shoes look pretty hot and I for one like the snake upper. Although when I hit the Nike Store with a friend one week back, he was almost offended by the style. Each their own and I think that the top fits the shoe. My pair of Kobe V’s is without the snake upper though, but the Team USA version came without it. Still if these kicks are as good as the first impression, the next pair might just feature more snake skin, even if only as a print.
