Kobe recent retirement from the game was a huge blow for not only basketball, but for the sneaker world too. It’s likely that the Nike Kobe XI will be the last signature shoe he wears on court. The Nike Kobe XI Elite Low Achilles Heel is dressed in a black and red Flyknit upper with gold accents on the Kobe logo on the tongue.
A black texturised swoosh appears on each sidewall which matches the ancient Greek warrior graphic of Achilles on the heel. The Achilles reference here pays tribute to Kobe’s season-ending surgery back in 2013. Four feet of thread was used for the surgery which is reflected by the four red lines on the back of the other shoe’s heel.
