As the Kobe 11 looks to be the last shoe Kobe Bryant will wear in the NBA, fans of his Nike Kobe line can expect releases to look back on his long history in the league.
This new pair does that, using the area on the heel reserved for symbols conveying the theme to call out the numbers he's worn with the Lakers. Those numbers are flanked by icons indicating the three titles he won while wearing 8 and the three titles and, presumably, the two NBA Finals MVP awards he won while wearing 24.
This was the first Kobe 11 to leak, photos of it initially arriving in November, 2015.
The sneaker release date on this Kobe 11 is Feb. 27, 2016.
