Kobe Bryant might have retired, but that doesn’t mean his legendary sneaker line is sleeping for good.

Over the course of the Eurobasket 2017 qualifiers players like Hungary’s Adam Hanga and Great Britain’s Teddy Okereafor have rocked the slick looking Kobe 11 July 4 edition with GB’s Andrew Lawrence rocking the Kobe 11 Red Horse.

Others still remain true to the old school, Luxembourg’s Alex Laurent has been seen wearing the electric Kobe 8 Fireworks while around the country the Kobe 8 Venice Beaches were still being worn.

The Kobe sneaker is without a doubt one of the sports most popular lines. More comfortable and lighter than the LeBron sneaker and in more attractive colour-ways, as well. The trainer is also more durable and perfect for those with wide feet (never buy Adidas D-Rose sneakers if you have wide feet). 

But in his latest offering, Kobe is starting to share his love of football (soccer) to all sneakerheads. The Kobe 11 “Mambacurial”  comes out tomorrow at a retail price of $160 (€142).

Taking the colorway from the Nike Mercurial Vapor Football Boot, the sneaker features a mix of pink flash, action green, and red plum with a “NIKE” hit on the medial sides done in white.
