Nike continues the successive release of the Kobe Prelude Pack today. Next up on the list is the Kobe VI.

Inspired by Kobe’s “Black Mamba” alter ego, the Kobe Prelude VI features a snake skin upper covered with an abstract collage of stars, sharks and other sea wildlife as sort of a nod to Southern California. The shoe also pays homage to the surf and skate culture of Los Angeles.

The Kobe Prelude VI will hit retailers in limited availability on Saturday, January 11. Watch and listen to Kobe discuss the making of the shoe below.
