Kobe is the last of a dying breed. The iso-hungry hero ball scorer, Kobe modeled so much of his game after Michael Jordan that the video mash-ups of identical moves span full half-hour segments on YouTube. The game has since changed and Kobe’s style of play doesn’t necessarily warrant a ton of fans in today’s NBA, but Nike Basketball is referencing the Black Mamba’s greatness with their latest Nike Kobe 11 “Last Emperor”. Fans of the Beethoven 9s or last year’s HTM 10s will love the familiar high contrast black and white Flyknit aesthetic, as the “Oreo”-like theme is accented with a Metallic Silver Swoosh with synthetic snakeskin graphics while a Court Purple icy outsole rounds out the bottom in a Concord-esque fashion. The heel even features a unique Sheath logo features an empirical selection of flowers. This new Kobe 11 will release overseas this weekend and will arrive stateside on February 4th, 2016. Check out more photos below and we’ll keep you updated with more of the latest release dates right here on Sneaker News. You can also look for this pair right now on eBay.
