Kobe 11 Last Emperor

The Kobe 11 may or may not get another retail release this weekend in this black/white colorway.

The sneaker was originally planned for a Jan. 30 launch, but retailers in the U.S. don't appear to have the shoes ready for a Saturday release. What's more, the usual product images from Nike aren't available just yet, suggesting that an online release isn't coming anytime soon. That being said, the shoe is currently listed on Nike Great Britain's launch calendar, so a Euro release on Jan. 30 is possible.

The sneaker is officially titled the "Last Emperor" Kobe 11 in reference to Kobe's regal status and possibly his strong presence in Asia.

Mark your calendar with a sneaker release date of Feb. 4 on this Kobe 11 and stick with Sole Collector for updates.
