PHOTOS: Kobe Bryant Wears New Nike Kobe 11 Shoes Vs. Kings

Kobe Bryant put on a pretty good performance on Thursday night as he scored 28 points on 10-of-18 shooting in just 31 minutes of play. Maybe it was the shoes?

Bryant wore the brand new Nike Kobe 11s for his final trip to Sacramento.

The Kobe 11s are set to be released on Saturday.

Here’s a look at the purple and gold colorway Bryant opted to go with, via Sean Cunningham and Ty Nowell:
