NikeLab Reveals Limited Kobe 11 Elite Brazil Colorway

For Rio, from Kobe.

The rollout of this year’s Olympic games in Rio has surely triggered some special footwear colorways as of late. This time around, Nike Basketball joins in on the fun with the Kobe 11 Elite Low silhouette as the canvas. Inspired by the need for a crisp white pair on a beautiful summer day, you’ll find its upper dominated by white Flyknit matched with a white midsole. A nod to the Brazilian flag can also be seen throughout its detailing as hints of green, blue and yellow are visible within subtle detailing on its lace tips, Swoosh and heel outlines. Playing off of Kobe Bryant’s “Black Mamba” nickname, reptilian scales are placed along its heel and tongue for finishing touches.

The NikeLab Kobe 11 Elite Low Brazil will release in very limited quantities on August 6.
