Nike Kobe 11 “Draft Day” Takes Us Back to 1996

Well thought stories persists as the driving force behind the ongoing Nike Kobe 11 campaign. Yesterday we saw an engineered mesh pair paying tribute to his Philadelphia high school, Lower Merion. And today, the story picks up where that chapter ends – draft night.

On June 26, 1996, Kobe Bryant was drafted 13th overall to the Charlotte Hornets. He was, of course, later dealt to the Los Angeles Lakers where he’ll end his Hall of Fame career on April 13.

The Nike Kobe 11 “Draft Day” pays tribute to that night in Hornets coloring and 6-26-96 marking the heel. Again, engineered mesh subs in for Flyknit fabrication adopting a predominately grey base adjoined by purple and teal secondary tones.

Take a closer look at this “Draft Day” Kobe 11 and relish in the continued evolution of proper sneaker stories.
