While Kobe Bryant is still rehabbing to get back into game day-shape, it looks as if he and Nike have commissioned the services of his wife, Vanessa Bryant, to rock his new kicks.

Accordingly, Mrs. Kobe just posted a shot of herself sporting an unreleased Teal/Orange colorway of The Black Mamba's Kobe 8 from the Swoosh. The pair features the now-accustomed mesh build, showcasing that familiar snakeskin look throughout the upper. The orange branding and matching accents pop nicely over-top the Teal backdrop, as we hope this Kobe 8 selection will be arriving sooner rather than later.

For now, looking good, Vanessa. Oh, and get back to the court soon, Kobe.
