Nike has readied numerous special-edition kicks for the Summer Olympics, but this Kobe 11 Elite Low, finished in a brilliant white shade, is especially medal-worthy. Wearing a lightweight and breathable Flyknit upper, the low-top offers a subtle nod to host country Brazil through the subtle application of green, blue and yellow national colors. Tonal snakeskin textures on the leather Swoosh and heel tab round out the details. The kicks hit select NikeLab retailers beginning August 6th.

Release Date: 8/6/16 (Saturday)
