Before Mamba lays his basketball career down to rest, the Nike Kobe 11 ‘Eulogy’ would like a few words. No gold on this Lakers based colorway, Kobe has enough of that in his trophy room. Just a simple purple and black build with an ice sole. A fitting sendoff for LA’s most notorious scorer and sports personality. His signature line will continue far after Kobe is done, but this drop is one for the display case. Yellowing be damned, I’ll be purchasing these to rock on April 13 when he steps on to the Staples court for the last time.
The Nike Kobe 11 ‘Eulogy’ collection releases Feb. 27. Retail on the shoes is $200.
