The latest iteration of the Nike Kobe 11 embodies Kobe Bryant’s adoration for soccer, as it’s dressed in the signature colors of the iconic European club, FC Barcelona.

This “Mambacurial” pair essentially blends the defining tones across its flyknit-constructed upper, with a gradient of blue and red shades intertwined across the heel and medial section of the sneaker. Bright yellow Swooshes on its side panels further pronounce the design, while a football-style emblem with stars on the heel is applied as a nod to Bryant’s five championships.

Retailing for $200, you can find this standout pair at select Nike retailers worldwide starting Thursday, September 8th.

The makeup and the colorway is a winner for me. If you’re a fan of the soccer club and silhouette as well, this should be an automatic purchase for you.
