Monday Morning Kicks Off: Nike Kobe 11 Em Low Gs “Green Snake”

POSTED BY ANTHONY COELHO

While having bid farewell to a long, rewarding career in the NBA, 5-time champion Kobe Bryant continues to live on in Nike’s sneaker department. His 20 years spent as a Los Angeles Laker—the most seasons by any player on one franchise—can only be captured by highlight reels or Sportscenter ’30 for 30’ episodes. But with this exclusive, grade school release of the Nike Kobe 11 Lows, the younger generation can now imagine what once was, in the same style and light and as the Black Mamba himself.

While previous Kobe 11 releases all feature a multicolored Flyknit upper, the Nike Kobe 11 “Green Snake” edition is the first to sport a snakeskin-inspired engineered mesh—mixed in an anthracite, metallic silver/black and lucid green colorway. The Black Mamba theme is furthermore enforced on the shoe’s heels, with a synthetic snakeskin-like textile and a vicious snake logo embroidered on the right heel. All of this is then finished off with a vibrant, translucent outsole that is sure to turn heads upon coming in contact with any type of light.

Scheduled for release today, August 8th, 2016, these particular Nike Kobe 11s will only be available in kid sizes (to much of our grown folk reader’s disappointment). It is not yet known if the Nike Kobe 11s will be reproduced in men sizes, but if we follow Nike’s history, they most definitely will. Priced at only $135—about €122 and £104 respectively—The Kobe 11 “Green Snake” will be available at select Nike Basketball retailers, as well as online at major shoe sites. Be sure to cop these! Peace.
