Having made appearances with the likes of Lionel Messi and appeared in commercials for Copa America Centenario, it’s no secret that Kobe Bryant is a huge football/soccer fan. So it should come as no surprise that one of the latest colorways – the Kobe 11 Mambacurial – is a tribute to FC Barcelona.

So what does this colorway for Kobe 11 bring us? For starters, blue and red gradients are intertwined throughout the heel and mid section. The iconic Nike Swoosh making a bright yellow appearance on each side panel. With this color combo, there is no mistaking any member of the European football club could rock this shoe.

This version of the Kobe 11 contains a football-style emblem on the heel featuring five stars as a nod to Bryant’s five championships. Cause it ain’t the Mamba’s shoe without a touch of Kobe. And the whole shoe is pulled together by the gum outsole. Which from our POV is one of the stand-out elements of the shoe. Giving it a clean appearance.
