With just a few months left in Kobe Bryant's illustrious NBA career, Nike looks to be ramping up the releases of his final signature sneaker. The latest Nike Kobe XI colorway to pop up comes in a clean black and white version, that may look familiar to fans of the Kobe IX.
This colorway resembles both the "BHM" and "Beethoven" Kobe IXs, but there are some new XI-specific details, too. As Kenlu points out, this colorway appears to follow the theme of adding a sign to the right heel to represent that particular edition's inspiration. The "Achilles Heel" colorway used an image to honor the Greek hero, but it is not clear what this one means. With this being Bryant's last playing sneaker, we're sure the inspiration behind this colorway is something very important to him, but we'll have to wait and see.
No release info is available yet, but Nike Blog suspects that this could drop at the end of this month.
