Another classic Kobe colorway pops up on the latest model, as the Nike Kobe 11 EM ‘Carpe Diem’ has finally dropped at numerous online retailers.
Previous colorways include the ‘Bruce Lee’, ‘Draft Day’, and ‘Lower Merion’ colorways that first appeared on previous Kobe sneakers with an encore on the Kobe 11.
These feature everything the original Carpe Diem Nike Kobe 4 had, all the way down to the quilted interior and translucent outsole. They don’t sport the Carpe Diem patch that the Kobe 4 had, however.
The colorway was set as motivation for Kobe and the 2009 Lakers, who wanted to “seize the day” after losing to the Celtics the previous year. The rest is history as Kobe won two more rings thereafter.
You can purchase the Nike Kobe 11 EM ‘Carpe Diem’ for $160 at the retailers below:
