Today Kobe Bryant is a muse, but growing up Bryant had his own hero. In addition to admiring Michael Jordan’s commitment to greatness both on and off the court, he was intrigued by the Jumpman’s signature line, which Jordan created in collaboration with Nike designer Tinker Hatfield. “Tinker has caused my parents a lot of headaches over the years,” Bryant recalls, “from being a kid and having to go find a bunch of Air Jordans.”
Elements of Bryant’s favorite shoe, the iconic Air Jordan 3, are reinterpreted in the second shoe in the Nike Kobe 11 Muse Pack, designed by Tinker Hatfield. This release even includes the notable ‘Nike Air’ branding on the heel.
