Kobe Bryant is set to retire after this current season while the Kobe 11 will launch soon in the midst of Kobe’s impending retirement. Although the announcement was rather shocking for his fans, the 37-year-old Los Angeles Star seems to look forward to the end of his career.

As per the Sneaker News Reports, Kobe 11, surmised by most to be the last Kobe signature shoe before Bryant retire from being an active NBA player, is set to debut in the coming months. The buzz about Nike’s pushing up the launch date from the initial January 2016 schedule to maybe as soon as possible seems very loud now.

Added titillation for the fans is the plush little detail that no less than the famous Tinker Hatfield himself will design the eleventh Nike Kobe shoe. There is a lot of excitement around the eleventh edition of the shoe and all the relevant information as well as the official launch of the shoe will be made on the official Nike Store.

EU Kicks details on the exclusive product and quotes, “In terms of design, the silhouette fits nicely in the recent KOBE signature drops with its sleek low cut build. Rocking scaly textures on the upper, the kicks take on a very LA Lakers combination of purple and black on a semi-translucent sole.”

The first product to make its way to the web is the Nike Kobe 11 GS although for sure the men’s sizes will show up soon.  A first glance at the GS size release will focus your sight on the seamless upper (either Flyknit or Flyweave), Zoom Air cushioning, and the signature low-cut design.

However, there is no word on the exact release of the shoe but all relevant information will be out soon, as per the sources. Stay tuned for all the updates.

Here are some of the exclusive photos of the Nike Kobe 11.
