Not having the Black Mamba in the Lakers’ starting lineup won’t really hit home until the beginning of next season, but in the meantime, Nike Basketball is making sure you remember Kobe’s Hollywood legacy with the release of the Nike Kobe 11 EM “Carpe Diem” this Saturday, May 21st. If you can remember, the “Carpe Diem” look first landed on the Kobe 2 featuring an all-black upper, synthetic croc skin on the toecap and just the right amount of Court Purple and University Gold throughout. Here the Kobe 11 ditches the usual Flyknit construction that has been a standard for the past three signature Kobe installments for a breathable Engineered Mesh instead. A subtle yellow grid hits the lining while a Lakers-themed Swoosh is outlined in Court Purple for a ‘PE’ vibe. Are you a fan of the look? Check out more detailed photos below and let us know if you plan on grabbing this latest Kobe pair come Saturday by taking your thoughts to the comments section.
