Tonight, Kobe Bryant says goodbye to Sacramento, and he's doing so in a brand new Nike Kobe 11 colorway.

Bryant took the floor against his old rivals in a Lakers-themed Kobe 11, somewhat reminiscent of the "Snake Pool" Hyperdunks from 2008. The shoes feature an unmistakably LA yellow-to-purple gradient Flyknit upper, which rests upon a purple translucent outsole.

As of now, it's unclear whether or not this colorway will be released, but judging by the reaction of fans on Twitter, Nike should seriously consider it. Stay tuned for updates.
