Kobe Bryant’s final season means that his story with Nike Kobe 11 For Sale may be coming to a close and for their final chapter they are continuing to innovate. The Nike Kobe 11 is an inventive shoe with an improvement on the tech he previously pioneered.The answer to that is a resounding yes, and as usual, Kobe doesn’t disappoint in the style department. A fiery red upper that makes reference to Achilles fades to black from toe to heel over the course of this low vamp silhouette and if you take a look beneath the shoe, you’ll see that the outsole has also been revamped.
Nike is seizing the day and riding the wave of the Cheap Kobe 11 Elite 4KB in popularity by dropping a fresh interpretation of his shoe line’s best colourway ever – the ‘Carpe Diem’. And rightly so, because if even Barry Obama is referencing Bryant then Nike sure as hell should be too. This time, the colourway is hitting the low-profiled Kobe 11, and we have to say, it’s one of the nicest interpretations of the Lakers colour palette we’ve seen. Yellow is less prevalent on this ‘Carpe Diem’, allowing the black and icy blue get their time to shine and making for a stauncher finished product.
The Nike Kobe 11 Aces will serve as Kobe’s on-foot victory lap as it will be the last signature model the Black Mamba ever wears on-court. Designer Eric Avar took the concept of basketball sneakers to new heights when paired with Kobe and for his eleventh signature model, the duo simplified everything down to its purest form. The Flyknit upper gets an upgrade thanks to TPU – thermoplastic polyurethane threads – that makes the material stronger than ever. The debut colorway, the Kobe 11 Achilles Heel , will launch on January 9th, 2016 for $200. With an intimidating gradient upper that sees a black heel fade into University Red, a snakeskin Swoosh adds to the whole ‘Mamba’ motif. Are you a fan of the colorway?
