Nike unveils new Kobe XI Elite 'Red Horse,' sets global release for June
The 'Red Horse' colorway will be available June 1 (June 2 in Manila) and will retail for $220. 

KOBE Bryant’s playing days might be over but his popular signature sneaker is far from done in pushing style and performance boundaries.

Nike is set to drop the latest version of the Kobe 11 Elite, the red-hot 'Red Horse,' a fitting nod to the earlier released sneakerhead favorite 'White Horse.'

Using the Elite system, the current iteration of the shoe's upper has the functional Flyknit construction paired with fashionable white leather accents. An ample amount of red stitching attaches the heel to the white leather.

Each pair also features a series of unique icons on the heel as well as “hidden” messages written in code along the side of the outsole.

The 'Red Horse' colorway will be available June 1 (June 2 in Manila) and will retail for $220.
