Although Kobe Bryant won’t be playing in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, this variation of the Nike Kobe 11, which is essentially Bryant’s last on-court sneaker, will pay homage to the his time with the USAB program.
Sporting a patriotic palette of red, white and blue, notable details are located on the heel, which references to Bryant’s two appearances in the Olympics — “08” and “12”. All resting atop a translucent sole unit, the basketball sneaker is rounded out with subtle reflective accents seen on the sheath logo across its tongue.
Priced at $200, you can purchase a pair at select Nike retailers worldwide on Saturday, July 2nd.
I like the silhouette overall and it looks really appealing in this colorway. The theme is well done and this should garner some attention.
