This FC Barcelona-Inspired Nike Kobe 11 Mambacurial Drops Next Week


Not a stranger to showcasing his admiration for the sport of soccer, this forthcoming Nike Kobe 11 Elite Mambacurial is essentially colored in the signature colors of the iconic European club — FC Barcelona.

With the defining hues prominent across its flyknit-constructed upper, a gradient of blue and red is intertwined throughout the heel and medial section, while bright yellow Swooshes are applied on the side panels to further solidify its respective palette. All adhered atop a versatile gum outsole, the model is rounded out with a football-style emblem on the heel featuring five stars as a nod to Bryant’s five championships.

Priced at $200, you can purchase this standout pair at select Nike retailers worldwide starting Thursday, September 8th.

The makeup and the colorway is a winner for me. If you’re a fan of the soccer club and silhouette as well, this should be an automatic purchase for you.
