Don't panic — Kobe Bryant is still alive. Despite that, Nike Basketball went ahead and called this new Kobe 11 the "Eulogy."
Nike's description of the shoe doesn't give much reason for why the colorway is named after praise usually reserved for the deceased, but we're going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they're aiming for the more general sense of the word "eulogy."
The sneaker wears Bryant's #8 and #24 on back along with icons representing his championships.
The sneaker release date on this Kobe 11 colorway is set for Feb. 27.
