After getting a couple of different looks at this upcoming colorway of the Nike Kobe 11, today we get the official story/inspiration behind this unique colorway.
According to Nike, Kobe would pore over videotaped basketball games sent by his grandfather in the US, then practice every cut and drive. This was of course at a time when Kobe was living in Italy where he grew up. Taking inspiration from these viewing sessions, this new kids-only Kobe 11 features the distinctive look of old-school VHS color bars. The Wolf Grey upper is also meant to look like the fuzzy screen that you see on old tapes. This Kobe 11 features a woven mesh upper along with Black accents on the tongue, laces, inner liner and the Nike Swoosh branding.
Releasing on May 27th for a retail price of $135, do you plan on picking up a pair for the little ones?
Now the we know the story/inspiration behind this colorway I understand the colorful bars on the heel. Pretty dope concept, I just think Nike should have released them in men’s sizes as well.
