Nike Kobe 11
The Nike Kobe 11 may have been the last great Kobe shoe. They didn’t make them nearly as well after this one.
Colorway: Cool Grey/Black-University Red
Release Date: May 5, 2016
Kobe Bryant was always serious about his sneakers. He was involved in every way possible because he wanted to get the best out of himself with the help of his shoes. That is very evident in the Nike Kobe 11. We can see how the Mamba himself was included in the design and function of the silhouette. After this release, things weren’t the same. The same can be said after January 26, 2020.
