One of the things we’ll miss most about Kobe is the palpable excitement around his sneaker releases, especially the Bruce Lee colorways. The popular color scheme is definitely one of our favorites and seeing it finally make it’s way to the Nike Kobe 11 is sort of bittersweet but very much welcomed.

Kobe’s 11th model is a fully Flyknit affair so this leaves the weave to do the job of carrying the colors and it really delivers. A golden toe shifts to a black heel with the mid-panel blending the two while interjecting hits of red into the mix as well -- courtesy of the Flywires. The heels of this model sport red slashes that pay tribute to both Lee and Bryant in very fitting fashion.

You’ll be able to pick up the Nike Kobe 11 ‘Bruce Lee’ on March 19th at select Nike retailers, hopefully these images can tide you over in the meantime.
