Kobe’s retirement is eliciting all types of reactions from fans far and wide but not many as prominent as Nike.  They are mourning the loss of one of the game’s greatest by dedicating a colorway of his sneaker to him and calling it the ‘Eulogy’.

The pair itself bleeds Laker’s pride with a Flyknit upper that shifts from purple to black as you move to the back of the shoe. The translucent blue outsole houses the sneaker’s Zoom cushioning system and an homage to his ankle and jersey number can be found planted firmly on the heel. The model serves as a very fitting tribute to Kobe’s exit but also should be a reminder that his retros will live on forever.

The Nike Kobe 11 Eulogy comes with some pretty cool gear as well including a hat, socks and matching tee. You’ll be able to cop each piece from Nike on February 27th.
