The Nike Kobe 11 ‘Muse’ Pack was recently unveiled by Nike to celebrate the Black Mamba’s final NBA game. After an exceptional performance against the Utah Jazz, Kobe Bryant wound up scoring 60 points.
The three pair collection that forms the Muse Nike Kobe 11 Pack takes inspiration from designers at Nike: Mark Parker, Tinker Hatfield and Eric Avar which honors Kobe Bryant’s 20 year career.
Starting out the collection is the Nike Kobe 11 Avar Muse. Inspiration behind his pair has came from the designers interest in the beauty of nature. More in-depth, he was inspired by Yosemite National Park’s ‘El Capitan’ rock formation. On the right heel of this Nike Kobe 11 is a leather patch that reads “I see beauty in the struggle”, which is a philosophy that Avar and Bryant both share.
Detailing goes a bit deeper with this pair, you will notice the hues of Blue through the Flyknit upper that were taken from the beautiful sky and water you see from the California summit. The liner around the taupe collar and the outsole references the texture granite formation. Featuring a multicolor insole which is also associated with Yosemite. Completing the look is boot laces which is a nod to hiking outdoors.
