Releasing this upcoming weekend will be the next colorway of the Nike Kobe 11. With Kobe Bryant having retired over a month ago it seems that people aren’t too interested in the Kobe 11 anymore.

Maybe this new Carpe Diem colorway will change things a bit. Inspired by the Nike Zoom Kobe 4 Carpe Diem, this colorway recalls Kobe’s 2009 Championship and every day he seized thereafter. The engineered mesh upper on this pair of Kobe 11s has been done in Black while Court Purple lands on the Kobe logo on the tongue, and University Gold covers the Swoosh. The quilted inner liner is done in a combination of Black and University Gold.

Set to release on May 21st for $160, who plans on scooping up this Kobe 11? Take a look at the on-feet images below so you know what the shoes will look like if you do decide to buy them.

True fans of the Nike Kobe line will be happy to see this Carpe Diem colorway make a return. This can also serve as another Lakers colorway, which is always a good thing for fans of the team.
