There is a Shrouded Nike Kobe 11 Coming

Today, Nike officially unveiled a brand new Kobe model dubbed the Kobe A.D. NXT, but overseas retailers have just received a new version of the Kobe 11: the Nike Kobe 11 ALT.

This rendition of the Kobe 11 features a shrouded upper that is similar to the one the Kobe Icon used. Under the shroud is a basic Kobe 11 build with multi-colored Flyknit — which seems like a bit of a waste since you can’t see it.

Tooling and tech specs will likely remain the same; the Kobe 11 which featured a Lunarlon drop-in midsole with heel Zoom Air.

There is no word on whether or not this version of the Kobe 11 will make it to U.S. retailers, but it’s currently scheduled to release March 30 in Japan and Taiwan.

Share your thoughts on the Nike Kobe 11 ALT below and let us know if you find it strange that the Kobe 11 is still being released while the Kobe A.D. is supposed to be at the forefront.

  1. Nike is probably trying to make use of their excess. The use of knit does interest me, even if hidden, it is protected. Not driven to pay whatever retail is set at though.

  2. Ok, so theres a shroud. So how much is Nike gonna charge for this added piece of fabric? $300? I want them to go $400, just to make it clearly ridiculous.

  3. Nice design. I just wish they put that mamba logo on the tongue on top of the shroud and added full length zoom.

  4. NXT and then ALT? should’ve named it WTF and LOL. and what’s up with the Kobe line redoing the shroud? did the Icon even made that much noise? should’ve left the Zoom Flight 98’s alone.

  5. LOL… Nike is doing everything releasing everything to hype everyone so they charge them at a min of $200. #smh

  6. I’ve seen these in person already. I haven’t tried wearing them because they looked hideous and looked liked a umbrella tarp or a used condom.
