Starting this weekend, the Nike Kobe 11 Achilles Heel will finally be available, as it’s notably the inaugural colorway for Bryant’s last on-court sneaker.

Sporting the ubiquitous and adored colorway of Red and Black, the vivid hue is more prominent across the frontal portion of its upper and inner lining, while Black converges on the side panels and towards the heel. Flaunting a revamped flyknit upper composition that includes thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) yarn for superior strength, the model is supplemented atop a black full-length Lunarlon foam and Zoom unit in the heel for cushioning.

Additional notable details include metallic gold sheath logos on the tongue, Swoosh branding on the sides and matching black laces. You can find a pair at Nike retailers on January 9, 2016 for $200.
