The mamba strikes again with a true sequel to the ‘Mambacurial’ colorway dressing the Nike Kobe 11.
The sneaker is almost beat-for-beat like the Kobe 8 with the same namesake – with the purple to pink gradient dressing the upper. Volt touches up the translucent sole, Kobe logos on the tongue, and the swooshes on the sides. These swooshes are the only big difference as they’ve been moved from the toe area to the midfoot. The signature NIKE is strewn on the medial side of the shoe, just like what you’d expect from the Mercurial cleat which inspired this shoe. All of this is connected through Kobe’s secret love for soccer, as he watched the sport while growing up in Italy.
