The Nike Kobe 11 ‘TV’ is another chapter in the series that highlights moments in the Black Mamba’s career. The latest edition is inspired by going off air, using the multiple colors you would see on your television.
At first, many thought this shoe was attributed to Kobe Bryant’s retirement, but that isn’t the case. Kobe grew up in Italy and would receive pre-recorded basketball videotapes from his grandfather in the United States and after watching, he would practice the moves he saw.
As you can see, the Nike Kobe 11 features Black and Grey through the Flyknit upper which gradients from Grey to Black going towards the heel. On the heel is the off air TV design you probably see late at night while Kobe’s branding is done in silver. The tongue also has a unique graphic using multiple colors. They are then finished off with a translucent midsole which extends to the sole.
