Taking inspiration from the countless hours Kobe spent as a kid in Italy watching videotaped basketball games received from his grandfather in the US, Nike has created a fresh new colorway just for the kids. This pair utilizes a mostly Wolf Grey upper that horizontally transitions to Cool Grey, and finally to dark grey at the rear. At the heel, you’ll find a multicolored block pattern, very similar to those seen on the old VHS tapes from back in the day. A black has been used along with matching laces and graphics, while a multicolored VHS-inspired tongue logo proudly stands out. A commonly seen on the Kobe XI, a translucent sole has been used.
It’s a shame that this release won’t see any adult sizes, but for those of you that can wear sneakers in the size 3.57-7Y range, you’ll be able to get the Nike Kobe 11 Wolf Grey on Saturday, May 27. Retail price is $135.
