A Detailed Look at the Kobe XI Elite Low ‘Ghost of Christmas Past’

Even though Kobe Bryant is no longer playing in the NBA, Nike has still created a Christmas colorway of the Kobe XI. It’s dubbed ‘Ghost of Christmas Past’, a name well-suited to the situation since Kobe isn’t playing in the NBA more and he played well during Christmas Day games (25.5 PPG, 6.5 rebounds, and 5.4 assists, just a few stats).

The Kobe XI Elite Low features a Volt Nike Flyknit upper, a small black Swoosh, and a clear translucent outsole. This model uses a drop-in Lunarlon midsole, a flex-grooved forefoot, and Zoom Air in the heel.

The Nike Kobe XI Elite Low ‘Ghost of Christmas Past’ is set to release on December 24 for $220. Don’t forget to check out the performance reviews by WearTesters’ very own Nightwing2303 (click here for performance review) and JAHRONMON (click here) if you have any questions before purchasing.

  1. Yeah the price is ridiculous. Who in their right mind would buy these for 220? However, the shoe looks better when they take the huge swoosh off and put a tiny one on instead.

  2. 220 and no full length zoom air unit. It’s a drop, just get the hyperdunk 2016 flyknit, a far better shoe and they’re on sale under retail now.

  3. Laker fan here… It was an immediate no questions asked cop for me. I know many of you are thrown off by the price, which you should be but these releases was too special and meaningful for me (Kobe’s last NBA game tearing Gordon Hayward a new one as he does every Christmas season to any one that challenged him in the past). So it’s more meaning rather than price for me personally.
