Odee nickname aside, this new Kobe XI colorway is very strong without any gimmicks.
Said to be inspired by the celebration of Kobe’s career, the ‘Last Emperor’ Nike Kobe XI is simply a great display of how a gradient design could be used on an entirely Flyknit upper.
This updated version of Nike’s proprietary construction displays different woven patterns. The large Zoom Air cushioning capsule in the heel is seen thru the translucent outsole.
The ‘Last Emperor’ Nike Kobe XI releases on Thursday, February 4th for $200.
