your question regarding: nike KOBE XI WHITE/COURT PURPLE-BLUE LAGOON
When one ends, a new era is beginning. The NIKE KOBE XI is the last on-court signature shoe from Kobe Bryant. It has been a long ride – hard to believe that it finally has come to an end. Los Angeles sadly hasn't been able to match the Mamba's ambition in his last season. Not even Kobe's greatness was able to save the sinking ship – rather the captain himself sank along with it. But still, the Black Mamba leaves the league saluting, adding a rare smile to his mixed emotions. The game will miss Kobe, Kobe will miss the game, that's certain. Almost as certain as Kobe going down as one of the best players to ever play the game of basketball. Does he bid farewell releasing the best basketball shoe ever? No, because that would not fit his desire and will of steadily improvement. But let's look on the bright side. Has anyone ever scored 60, I repeat, sixty points in his last game? It's up for discussion if somebody will ever beat that.
To describe the KOBE XI in a nutshell only a few words are needed: pure simplicity combined with a clean and modern design. The upper receives an upgraded Flyknit version which is accompanied by TPU to strengthen sophisticated areas and make sure a stable hold is ensured. Furthermore, a lightweight breathability has been achieved. Through a direct connection between sole and upper, an unique and deep standing leads to the literal witnessing of the drop-in Lunalon foam, almost overshadowing the Nike Zoom Air in heel. Thanks to the low-top design accompanied by a translucent rubber outsole a multidirectional range of motion and traction are provided.
Thereby Nike presents a sneaker in no way inferior to its eponym, the already mentioned, irreplaceable Kobe Bryant. The man, the myth, the legend. Sadly, there won't ever be another Kobe. But what would be more fitting right now than looking back at where it all started? Therefore the latest signature shoe is called KOBE XI DRAFT DAY! Shining in new splendor and a Charlotte Hornets colorway, who drafted him back then – trading him for Vlade Divac the next morning. Didn't turn out exactly the way they imagined it to, right? But Kobe and LA weren't complaining: Paving the way for the Lakers' success in the upcoming 20 years seems quite good in exchange for the big Serbian. After all the Hornets did pick him in the 1996 NBA-Draft, so releasing a shoe in honor of the franchise is the right thing to do. Outwards the shoe is a gem, because 'Kobe knows'! Never failing to satisfy claims, the future Hall of Famer definitely knows how to impress. A white upper with purple and blue Hornets-inspired accents add clarity in which direction this version is going. Last but not least, a '6.26.96' stitching on the heel area can be found. The exact day he was drafted by them. 20 years have passed since then. Mamba Out!

KOBE XI: Innovation Mastered
Brand information: nike
When it comes to basketball, there is no way around Nike – the brand with the Swoosh belongs to the game like dunks, three-pointers and cross-overs. Whether in the NBA, European leagues or your neighborhood streetball court – the world’s largest manufacturer of sports equipment is a staple in all things basketball since the 1980s.
The Nike „Blazer“, released in 1973, was the company’s first sneaker designed specifically for basketball. While the shoe was very functional for its time and was worn by NBA scoring machine George „Iceman“ Gervin, Nike still was not able to step out of other sports companies’ shadows. Following models of the early 80s, like the now legendary „Air Force 1“ and „Dunk“ also did not manage the success the company had hoped for. That all changed when in 1984/85 Michael Jordan decided to conquer the NBA and the shoe game with Nike. While the „Blazer“ was Nike’s way of politely knocking on the door of the basketball-sneaker world, they blew it out of its frame with the success of „His Airness“ and the „Air Jordan 1“.
Nike is the frontrunner in basketball
Ever since then Nike changed the game of basketball. The triumph of the AJ1 was not only the birth of the iconic „Air Jordan“ - dynasty. It also paved the way for a variety of shoe lines like the Flight, Hyperdunk, Air Max and Foamposites. Today about 60 percent of the NBA’s players rock the Swoosh. Among them are some of the biggest names of the game: From Sir Charles Barkley in the 90s, Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant in the 2000s, to Lebron James and Kevin Durant today – the superstars of the NBA achieve mindblowing feats wearing their signature Nike sneakers.
Nike not only specializes in shoes though. These days ballers can dress up in perfomance sportswear bearing the Swoosh from t-shirts to hoodies, sweat pants, shorts, sweat bands and socks. Wearing Nike you can be sure that while playing your next game not only will you be outfitted in highly functional and valuable gear – you will also look pretty damn good wetting jumpers from all over the court.
