Kobe Bryant will be playing in his final NBA game ever on April 13th when the Lakers host the Utah Jazz at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Everyone will be trying to find a way to get a ticket to that game before now and then.

Continuing with the special colorways of the Nike Kobe 11 that have been celebrating Kobe’s career is this upcoming Draft Day colorway. This Kobe 11 is dressed up in a combination of White, Blue Lagoon and Court Purple, which happen to be the team colors of the Charlotte Hornets, the team that originally drafted Kobe back in 1996. Kobe was taken as the 13th pick in the 1996 NBA Draft and was traded on Draft Day to the Lakers. As you can see in the images above, this colorway of the Kobe 11 is not made up of Flyknit but instead features an engineered mesh upper and has been hit with “6.26.96” on the heel, the day that Kobe was drafted.

The Nike Kobe 11 Draft Day is expected to hit retailers on April 28th for a retail price of $160. Will this be a cop or a drop for you?

Author’s Take

Definitely a colorway that you would want to add to the collection if you’re a Kobe Bryant fan. This shoe signifies the beginning of Kobe’s career and what could have been if he were never traded.
