Sometimes the sneakerheads get it right. When images of this Laker-themed Nike Kobe 11 first leaked, the 8:24 on the heel was more than a fine name as it was obviously meant to be a tribute to Kobe Bryant’s amazing career and the two number he wore in the NBA. Then it’s revealed that Nike’s official nickname for this shoe is actually “Eulogy”, which is meant to honor who has uh, passed on to another dimension (that’s a Dragon Ball Z reference). Yeah, a little too morbid there, Nike. Maybe we should stick to the 8:24 instead. Regardless of the name, one thing that is for sure is that Laker fans are going to eat this pair up as one of Kobe’s final signature shoes that he will actually wear on the court.
