Tomorrow will bring us the release of the Nike Kobe 11 in the Aces colorway that pays homage to Lower Merion High School, Kobe’s alma mater.
Next week we’ll also be seeing the release of another Kobe 11 that you see pictured above. The Brave Blue colorway of the Kobe 11 sticks true to the original and utilizes a Flyknit upper instead of the engineered mesh we’ll see on the Aces colorway tomorrow. Looking at this Brave Blue colorway we can see that it features a gradient Flyknit upper that starts off with Brave Blue on the toe and then shifts to University Blue at the heel. University Blue also lands on the laces and the Kobe branding on the tongue. Metallic Silver provides some contrast as it can be seen on the Swoosh logos on the side panels. It is being said that this colorway of the Kobe 11 is inspired by Eric Avar, the man who design Kobe’s Nike sneakers.
Take a look at the latest images above and look for the Nike Kobe 11 Brave Blue at select Nike retailers on April 14th for a retail price of $200.
I would have liked this colorway much better if the entire Flyknit upper would have been Brave Blue and they would have just gotten rid of the University Blue detailing. The Metallic Silver Swoosh is also a nice touch. Still a solid colorway, but not for $200.
