Kobe Bryant’s longstanding love of soccer annually inspires a colorway of his signature shoe, dubbed the “Mambacurial.” The special colorway tends to be among each model’s best, and the latest installment doesn’t appear likely to disappoint.
The Nike Kobe 11 Mambacurial plays up the usual bright, vibrant colors, borrowed from the always-conspicuous Mercurial soccer boots. A navy blue Flyknit forefoot transitions in gradient fashion to blue on the lateral side and red on the medial, with a yellow leather Swoosh adding a sharp bit of contrast. Suede tongues deliver a premium touch to the look, and a gum brown outsole rounds it out in cool, classic style.
The Nike Kobe 11 Mambacurial releases today, September 8, at retailers nationwide. Online accounts will stock it at 10am EDT/7am PDT. Here’s the FootLocker.com purchase link.
