If you thought that Nike would take Kobe’s retirement as their cue to stop cranking out kicks, then you must not understand how capitalism works. They’ve got a good thing going and with the Olympics underway, they’re really pouring on the heat in the form of a pristine white hot silhouette.

The NikeLab Kobe 11 Elite Brazil is a full on Flyknit sneaker that comes off clean as all get out courtesy of a majority white silhouette. The model is dotted with white leather accents that feature a faux snakeskin texture and subtle gold trim. They don’t feel that patriotic but the blue insole gives it a nice USA slant.

These are available now at select NikeLab locations around the world, so pick up a pair if there is one in your hood.
