Today Nike unveiled the Kobe 11, a progressive low-top that distills Bryant’s signature legacy to its essence: high performance, lightweight, responsive and sophisticated design. Key innovations include an advanced Flyknit upper with thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) yarn for strength – this is new for Flyknit.

The KOBE 11 launches globally on January 9.
