A tribute to the Black Mamba.
The Nike Kobe 11 EM (engineered mesh) will be arriving in a little over a week in this all black colorway, which we would imagine is a nod to his alter ego, The Black Mamba.
The only form of contrast on the blacked out Kobe 11 EM is the silver lining about the swoosh and the Kobe logo on the tongue. A translucent outsole also adds a subtle pop to the sneakers which will officially release tomorrow, July 9th, for $160.
And if you're looking for a little more flair on your Kobe sneakers, the a patriotic "USA" joint is still available at most major retailers.
