Kobe fans were sad to hear that his illustrious and tenured career is finally coming to an end, but his Nike Kobe 11 is still slated for a Jan. 9 drop date. With snakeskin DNA on the outer swoosh, Nike’s Flyknit technology on the upper, and a full Lunarlon foam unit in the sole, you can play in legendary style and classic comfort very soon.

The clear-rubber bottom displays flex grooves for multidirectional mobility and traction, while the Zoom Air unit in the heel gives you the classic, top-of-the-line cushioning we’ve all come to expect from Nike. The best part is the shoe will be available in full family sizing! This first colorway will be named ‘Achilles Heel’ for, well, obvious reasons. If you’d like to hear more on the inspiration and innovation of this shoe, hear it straight from Nike’s head of innovation.
