It looks like Nike is giving the Kobe signature line a Halloween-theme sneaker this year. I’m glad I was told ahead of time because I would have never guessed it based on what the shoe looks like from afar. No Orange, no Purple, what’s up with that? Anyhow, let’s see if we can find anything remotely related to one of the best holidays of the year.
The Nike Kobe 11 Halloween comes in a tonal grey Flyknit upper. The same hue can be found on the Nike Swoosh, tongue branding and sole unit. The only parts of the shoe that symbolizes any kind of Halloween theme are the skeletal ribs on the heel, the spine-like print on the heel tab strip and the skulls noted on the insoles. Spotted for sale in Japan, we will let you know if/when these ever arrive stateside. First thoughts on the shoe? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
I’m curious to see what the theme-correlation is. If it truly is Halloween, I wish it had more of a feel to it.
