As the future Hall of Famer relaxes in retirement, Nike has unveiled their new Kobe 11 Muse Pack, which pays tribute to Kobe’s “Black Mamba” nickname.
The focus of the new design and detail of the Kobe 11 Muse Pack is reflecting the most dangerous snake alive, the Black Mamba. In the video, Kobe speaks about how he and the Nike CEO, Mark Parker, collaborated on the new design of the Kobe 11 Muse Pack.
“Taking inspiration from this rich designer-athlete rapport and Bryant’s moniker “The Black Mamba,” the third shoe in the Kobe 11 Muse Pack features subtle details reflecting the black mamba snake. From the re-engineered Flyknit pattern and laces to the tongue and shoe underbelly, reptilian details designed by Parker subtly come to life on this new shoe.”
Much respect to Nike CEO Mark Parker for his mentorship, friendship and personally designing my new shoe, check it: https://t.co/yVTUbARzDR
