The Nike Kobe 11 “Mambacurial” is almost here with a release date slated for September 15th, 2016. The original Mambacurial colorway utilizing those head-turning Pink Flash, Action Green, and Red Plum shades were originally found on the Nike Kobe 8 System inspired by the Nike Mercurial soccer boot. This OG colorway joins a rather long list of other Nike Kobe 11 Mambacurial offerings, as Nike Basketball will also release the eclectic What The Mambacurial Kobe 11 and another pair inspired by Kobe’s love of FC Barcelona.
The Nike Kobe 11 Mambacurial ditches the premium Flyknit construction this time around, instead opting for that breathable Engineered Mesh counterpart. While the pair will be a bit cheaper at $160 USD, the construction and aesthetic is by no means cheap. Nike ditches the forefoot Swoosh placement inspired by Nike soccer wears for a traditional side panel look with Action Green highlighting the branding throughout. The medial side sports that bold ‘Nike’ callout in white while a translucent Action Green outsole contrasts the Pink Flash engineered mesh upper perfectly.
