Kobe Bryant's "Black Mamba" persona is inspired by one of the world's deadliest snakes, but his newest Nike model draws inspiration from one of the world's deadliest bugs. On the heel of the Mamba Rage's new colorway is a scorpion logo, which makes one wonder if the Kobe persona is evolving.

The new colorway has a Black upper with an Aqua Blue background, sole and tongue logo. However, the new colorway is just an Asia exclusive at this time with no word on when or if a U.S. release apart of Nike's future plans.
