The Nike Kobe series sees a revival of its “Carpe Diem” theme which originally debuted on 2009 Nike Zoom Kobe 4. This time, the theme makes way to the Black Mamba’s latest and greatest sneaker, the Nike Kobe 11. Primarily draped in black, this new colorway utilizes University Gold for its swoosh graphics, which have been surrounded in Court Purple. The tongue and heel graphics have been embroidered in Court Purple as well, with Black and Gold applied to the sock liner to give the sneaker some extra personality. A translucent sole has been applied, giving the sneaker a clean finish.
You’ll be able to grab the Nike Kobe 11 Carpe Diem in stores beginning Saturday, May 21 with a retail price of $160. If you just can’t seem to wait that long, you can already grab a pair on eBay for pretty close to retail. Here’s a link to the listings if you’d like to get a pair before everyone else.
