In his formative years, Kobe Bryant considered Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan III to be his “all-time favorite [shoe], still [his] favorite to this day.” Jordan had a profound influence on Bryant’s career and, since joining Nike in 2003, so too have designers Tinker Hatfield and Eric Avar.

The second shoe in the Kobe 11 “Muse” pack draws inspiration from Bryant’s love of the silhouette, incorporating notable Jordan III details like black, red and grey color-blocking, a printed heel counter, and perforations in the lower tongue.

The Nike Kobe 11 “Muse” will be available in limited quantities beginning May 5 at and select global retail locations.

In the meantime, check out the Kobe 11 FTB “Black Mamba.”
