Kobe Bryant has always expressed his admiration for the Philippines during past Asia tours in conjunction with Nike Basketball, and to further showcase his appreciation for the country, this special Nike Kobe 11 is unveiled.
Flaunting an understated palette of deep royal blue covering its engineered mesh construction, the low-top basketball sneaker is pronounced with metallic gold accents that are prominent on the sheath logo across its tongue, Swooshes and subtle speckling throughout its translucent sole unit. In addition, slight pops of light blue are seen on the flywire system to cap off the profile.
I would’ve thought that the nation’s flag colors would be utilized instead, but, I’m not against this colorway either. I guess I’m just biased towards the shades.
