The Nike Kobe 11 will remain in Nike’s lineup for the remainder of 2016 with a new colorway inspired an old tale that you’ve probably heard before. Called the Nike Kobe 11 Ghost of Christmas Past, this pair is designed after the Ghost of the same name that visited the selfish Ebeneezer Scrooge in the story and often-remade film, A Christmas Carol.
Giving the sneaker a ghostly appearance, the Flyknit upper has been wrapped in Liquid Lime, new variant of Nike’s Green Glow color. Dark Obsidian is used as a supporting color, and is applied to the sock liner, swoosh graphics, and is also used on the sneaker’s dotted Liquid Lime laces. The four “stitches” at the left heel have been embroidered in red, while an icy clear sole with a blue tint gives the design a clean finish. These is one of the brightest Kobe 11s we’ve seen and isn’t for everyone’s taste. If breaking necks is your goal, however, this is the sneaker for you.
Expect to see the Nike Kobe XI Ghost of Christmas Past in stores on December 24. An Elite colorway, this pair will be priced at $220, with availability at most major retailers. Considering that the sneaker has a Christmas Even release and the fact that we probably won’t see many more Kobe 11 releases after this one, expect these to move quite fast, despite having to compete numerous December releases, like the Space Jam 11s. Will you add these Kobes to your collection?
