The Nike Kobe 11 “Achilles Heel” will be the first Nike Kobe 11 to release as this is Kobe Bryant’s final on-court shoe.
Kobe’s Nike Kobe 11 features Nike Flyknit technology that includes thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) yarn for superior strength, the brand’s first shoe to feature this new iteration of Flyknit. Similar to architects using metal rebar to reinforce structures, Nike Flyknit engineers reinforce zones of the upper using this high-strength material, micro-engineering areas of strength and stretch precisely where needed while reducing waste in the manufacturing process.
“Throughout my time with Nike, I’ve obsessed the details of my shoes. For the Kobe 11, we worked to perfect Flyknit for basketball,” said 17-time All-Star Kobe Bryant.
