Before Kobe Bryant bows out, he's once again using his sneakers to pay homage to one of his biggest muses.
The "Bruce Lee" concept was originally introduced on the Zoom Kobe 5 in 2010, the shoe's bold yellow upper a nod to the bodysuit worn by Lee in "The Game of Death." Scratch marks in red were symbolic of Lee's war wounds in the movie "Enter the Dragon."
This year, the Nike Kobe 11 inherits the classic theme, spinning yellow, black and red into a pattern on its Flyknit constructed upper. The scratch marks also reappear, albeit on the heel of this pair.
Kobe fans will be able to pick up this colorway when it releases on Saturday, March 19.
