The colorways for Kobe Bryant’s signature Kobe 11 Elite 4KB shoe look to keep picking up steam during post retirement and I am not mad at all about this. Looking to follow up where the ‘White Horse’ colorway for the Nike Kobe 11 Elite Low 4KB left off, we appear to be getting a next installment. Spotted on the Ky-rispy Kreme truck with a few other treats, the Nike Kobe 11 Elite Low 4KB ‘Red Horse’ being the main attraction. The official colorway is University Red/Summit White-Team Red and as you notice this is the flyknit version of the Nike Kobe 11 and not the Engineered Mesh so that prompts a retail price of $220. As for a release date though, it is expected for these to drop in June with talks of the 2nd being the date but that hasn’t been confirmed just yet.
Chapter 3, the Nike Kobe 11 Black Mamba. Since his departure from the sport of Basketball at the end of this season the folks at Nike have made it their duty to keep the Nike Kobe legacy alive. To speak on the story line that is Kobe’s career and stint with Nike, we have seen colorways release post retirement that made it clear in what direction Nike would be going. To kick things off with the ‘Muse Pack’ we saw the ‘Avar Muse’ and ‘Tinker Muse‘, each designed by Eric Avar and Tinker Hatfield who have played significant roles in molding Bryant’s signature shoe line. Closing the Muse Pack off is the Nike Kobe 11 ‘Parker Muse’ designed by Mark Parker and as you will learn in the official unveiling below, pays tribute to ‘The Black Mamba’.
It is less than a week before Marcus Jordan, Michael Jordan’s son, Nike Kobe 11 Mamba Day opens up his very first store, the Trophy Room. The retail location stationed in the newly opened Disney Springs. Prior to this look at the black Air Jordan XX3 ‘Trophy Room’ we received an official unveiling of the white version which is limited to 523 pairs. The 523 pairs is in reference to both Marcus and Michael’s jersey numbers and the grand opening date of May 23rd. Along with the official unveiling of that shoe were some much NEEDED and NECESSARY opening day details as far as how they will be handling their releases. As the date gets closer to The Trophy Room’s grand opening, more details continue to be released or in this case pictures. The Air Jordan XX3 ‘Trophy Room’ has now been provided with Nike official pictures which indicates that these will be releasing online. How soon? Possibly 5/23 to coincide with the stores opening or maybe a later date.
