UPDATE: Gather ye rosebuds while ye may! If the rousing words of John Keating aren't enough encouragement for you to get out there and cop a pair of these divinely executed Kobe 11s, then hopefully these purp'd out photos from the Swoosh will be enough to make you part with your pennies. May 21st release, don't let it pass you by. Seize the day!
Nike is seizing the day and riding the wave of the Black Mamba's surge in popularity by dropping a fresh interpretation of his shoe line's best colourway ever – the 'Carpe Diem'. And rightly so, because if even Barry Obama is referencing Bryant then Nike sure as hell should be too. This time, the colourway is hitting the low-profiled Kobe 11, and we have to say, it's one of the nicest interpretations of the Lakers colour palette we've seen. Yellow is less prevalent on this 'Carpe Diem', allowing the black and icy blue get their time to shine and making for a stauncher finished product.
The Nike Kobe 11 'Carpe Diem' is will be available from Nike.com on May 21. *mic drop* SF out.
