Back in 1996 on NBA Draft night, a lot of behind the scenes action took place to ensure that Kobe Bryant ultimately landed in Los Angeles. But with a new release, Nike images what would have happened if things had stayed the course.
The Nike Kobe 11 “Draft Day” comes outfitted in Charlotte Hornets tones, the team that originally drafted Bryant 13th overall. Now, at the end of his career, Nike goes back to where it all begin.
This Kobe 11 is dressed up in a combination of White, Blue Lagoon and Court Purple, As you can see in the images above, this colorway of the Kobe 11 is not made up of Flyknit but instead features an engineered mesh upper and has been hit with “6.26.96” on the heel, the day that Kobe was drafted.
