Kobe Bryant had Lakers fans standing on top of their desks chanting out “Carpe Diem” for the better part of the past decade once Shaq left town. The Black Mamba will go down as one of the greatest basketball players to ever step on the hardwood with his prolific scoring and insane competitive streak, and Nike Basketball continues to pay homage to the recent retiree with the Nike Kobe 11 “Carpe Diem”. Seize the day indeed Kobe did during his last NBA outing when he notched 60 points and a come from behind win against the Utah Jazz. The latest Kobe 11 releases skips out on the Flyknit for an Engineered Mesh and fuse offering in an ominous black base to imitate those alternate “Hollywood Nights” jerseys the Lakers started wearing a few years back. The Swoosh features a University Gold and Court Purple combination while an interesting yellow grid graphic lands on the lining to contrast a purple heel. The Kobe 11 Carpe Diem will drop on May 21st for $160 so check out more detailed images below and let us know if you plan on picking up this Lakers-themed Kobe by taking your thoughts to the comments section.
