Nike's "Year of the Snake" Destroyer Jacket -- the off-the-court companion piece to the identically themed Nike Kobe 8 System -- is inspired in equal measure by both the Chinese zodiac and Kobe Bryant's personal style. Embroidered patches at the right chest feature Chinese characters denoting the Year of the Snake, while a Chinese character across the back translates to "wisdom." The cow leather sleeves are finished in a unique snakeskin pattern, while the interior zipper flap is inscribed with "Year of the Black Mamba." Warm insulated lining and a rowan-knit collar and cuffs round out the details. The jacket is available now at select Nike retailers.
