OFFICIAL KOBE XI Thread

 

The KOBE 11 features Flyknit technology that includes thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) yarn for superior strength, the brand’s first shoe to feature this new iteration of Flyknit.  Similar to architects using metal rebar to reinforce structures, Nike Flyknit engineers reinforce zones of the upper using this high-strength material, micro-engineering areas of strength and stretch precisely where needed while reducing waste in the manufacturing process. Flyknit has reduced nearly 2 million pounds of waste since its 2012 inception.

I hope these are major. I have been very impressed with the last two iterations.

Tinker hatfield will become the lead designer! Also this will be the last Kobe shoe.... Sad but also excited
post #7 of 29240
But I don't understand. There's already color ways and what not for the Kobe XI. I assume he either designed the shoe or he's designing a specific pair

I think that it was he was the lead designer. I phrased it weirdly. It's because Nike does this all in advance and the timeline information is released that it makes it seem it's done in a short amount of time when it's actually done much earlier. He's the lead designer on them along with other members on the team. I wouldn't be surprised if Eric Avar was on it too

It being Kobe's last shoe I find that VERY hard to believe. He's always been very passionate about pushing his sneakers to the max as far as performance goes. This guy lives and breathes basketball. As far as designer, also have a hard time believing Tinker taking full control of the project when Avar has been doing a phenomenal job with Kobe's line. I would suspect Tinker playing a role much like how Mark Smith plays a role in co-creating Air Jordan models. It has been noted that Tinker is very fond of Avar's work.

There's definitely going to be a flyknit upper, they'll also do a flyweave upper that's their new thing. Probably full length zoom or lunar forefoot/zoom heel or vice versa.
post #14 of 29240
I hope these are nice
post #15 of 29240
Kobe has said in the past that he wants to continue his shoe line so if anything I would think it might be more of an indication that it's either his last season or he just wants Tinker to do the remaining models while he plays.
post #16 of 29240
His signature will most likely end as per requested by him, but team models may sprout from this along with an adjacent "Kobe/Mamba Brand". That would be cool to see

A lot of what Baltsneakershow has said have been sport on which is why I'm taking this almost as gospel but take as rumor if you prefer. It does seem like a Kobe thing to preserve his legacy in the 1-11s and then have a team shoe/Kobe brand shoe as he's hinted at getting a mamba squad together for a bit

After seeing Tinkers last couple of designs, I don't really have high expectations. From the huaraches 2k4-5 to the Kobe iv,v,vi,viii,Ix.... I would rather have Eric than Tinker... Tinker is washed

Just FYI, Tinker has said he did the initial sketch for the 2K4. He designed them and Eric Avar just helped them get from sketch to production.

Please let this be a classic, that's all I ask, so disappointed with the Xs only model I've completely skipped in the line outside of the waffle cones.

Excited to see some first rendering's of what the Kobe XI's look like.. Kobe is my main man 150 grand.. there is no way this is the last of his signature line. 

post #27 of 29240

i wouldn't go that far saying he's washed, he has done everything that needed to be done to make the sneaker culture what it is today. He is continuing to do that with innovation its not all about aesthetic he's using new technologies with basketball shoes.

C'mon now, be Rational.:rolleyes

 

A Man can have Classics, have Hall of Fame Stats... even be the Greatest of All-Time... AND STILL, even the GOAT can be Washed and probably WILL BE at some point. It's almost inevitable.

 

It's not an Insult to say someone's washed up... it happens to all the greats!

 

It's two diff worlds, but for all intents and purposes, put MJ out on the court with Lebron & KD, right now... would anybody be wrong for saying he's washed up or past his prime?

 

The GOAT's of their respective games can still have something to offer at the end of the day, but it's a Young Man's Game... eventually their performance will decline.
