The Nike Kobe 11 consisted as the last on-court sneaker for Kobe Bryant, and the next colorway of the silhouette will be making its arrival very soon.

Inspired by the Kobe 4’s classic “Carpe Diem” palette which first debuted in 2009, the same finish is essentially reissued on this model. Black dominates the engineered mesh upper and synthetic overlays across its toe cap and rear, while the subdued tone is punctuated by vibrant hits of court purple and university gold gracing the Swoosh logos across its side panels, grid stitching pattern on the inner lining, sheath logo on the tongue and more branding on the heels.

All adhered atop translucent outsole, you can purchase this latest pair at select Nike accounts on Saturday, May 21st for a retail price tag of $160.

Author’s Take

I wasn’t aware that this particular colorway was inspired by a previous model until now. I wasn’t really into Bryant’s sneakers back then. I do like this silhouette a lot and the execution was nicely done. Fans should be excited as well.
