For a limited time, you can celebrate Kobe’s storied career by customizing a pair of the Nike Kobe 11 EM in the #MambaDay pattern.
The NikeiD option includes uppers of black, white, purple, and yellow Engineered Mesh – all with a graffiti-like print that signifies career highlights for Bryant. An example would be the words “81 points” used on that print. This pattern likely wouldn’t have transferred as well on the Flyknit version of the Kobe 11, which is likely why you see it on the Engineered Mesh iteration.
Other than the upper, there isn’t a big difference between the two, although you do have the option of drop-in midsoles including Lunarlon, Lunarlon with heel Zoom, and full-length Zoom.
