he CEO of Nike created what many may consider the very best offering within the trio of designs for the Kobe 11 by himself, Tinker Hatfield , and Eric Avar, featuring the shoe in mix of black and purple Flyknit with a textured snakeskin panel on the heels for a bold yet sophisticated look. The third and final installment of the Nike Kobe 11 “Muse” Pack is finally revealed through this tribute to Nike CEO Mark Parker. Kobe Bryant has always viewed Parker as a personal mentor, viewing his pensiveness and calm as a key aspect to his decision-making skills. There’s no doubt that Parker’s influence on Kobe has translated in some ways to his success on and off the court, which is why Nike closes out this amazing collection with this necessary homage.
The Nike Kobe 11 Elite “Muse” pack concludes tomorrow with the launch of Mark Parker’s tribute to the Black Mamba. Joining the interpretation of the Kobe 11 by Eric Avar and Tinker Hatfield, Parker’s version features a unique black and royal blue speckled Flyknit upper with snake textured leather panels at each heel. The sole also features a unique treatment, with solid white up top that reveals a transition to clear on the bottom with stripes visible underneath.
