Nike Kobe 11 (XI) sneaker was first introduced in December 2015, just before the holidays. This edition will be always known as the last one Kobe Bryant wore on court, being a turning point in its collaboration with Nike that started in 2004. The Nike Kobe 11 were designed by Eric Avar, the same one who brought us the first shoes of this series. This edition of Kobe’s signature sneakers feature advanced Flyknit textile upper with synthetic overlays, Air Zoom unit in the heel and Lunarlon foam in the forefoot. This combination makes it one of the most comfortable and responsive low basketball shoes that also make up for a great every day sneaker. Throughout the 2016 we’ve seen various versions of the Nike Kobe 11, including and Elite version and the one that was part of the Black Mamba pack released to celebrate the retirement of the legendary NBA player.
