Now a staple in his signature line, Kobe Bryant's passion for soccer fuels another "Mambacurial" release.

Instead of pulling its look from one particular Mercurial, the Nike Kobe 11 is inspired by the "What The Mercurial" boots that released earlier this year. Panels representing different Mercurial models from 1998 to 2016 make up the wild new colorway.

The "Mambacurial" Kobe 11 is tentatively scheduled for a Thursday, September 15 release. Keep an eye on our release dates page for all updates moving forward.

UPDATE 8/24: It appears that the Kobe 11 scheduled for Sep. 15 is actually this pair. There is no confirmed release date yet on the "What the Mambacurial" shown here.
