Nike draws on inspiration from the classic Kobe 8.
As a nod to Kobe Bryant's love for the game of soccer, Nike has typically released "Mambacurial" colorways of The Black Mamba's signature sneakers, some of which, like the Kobe 8, came decked out in eye-catching shades of pink.
This year's "Mambacurial" Nike Kobe 11 is no different from that iconic pair, featuring a vibrant, eye-catching pink design accompanied by hits of electric green. The gradient of the upper shifts from pink flash to a deep red plum on the heel and includes big, bold "NIKE" branding which is another similarity to the classic Kobe 8.
Fans of the Mambcurial Kobe won't have to wait long for this bad boy to release, Nike has announced that they'll be hitting retailers tomorrow, September 15th for $160.
