Black History Month comes to the calendar in February, but it comes to Kobe Bryant’s latest shoe today, in the form of an advance look at the Nike Kobe 11 BHM.
Opting for a cool gradient effect, rather than the tribal print that’s proliferating on a number of other BHM shoes this year, the Nike Kobe 11 BHM starts blue in the toe of the Flyknit upper. That woven construction then undertakes a colorful shift to reds and yellows and pinks and everything in between in the midfoot, before finishing in black around the heel. Add in a touch of white on the sole and Swoosh, and Nike’s “POWER OF ONE” Black History Month theme scrawled on the insole, and this one’s a perfect tribute.
The Nike Kobe 11 BHM releases January 16. Price hasn’t been announced yet, but it’ll be in the area of $200.
