As the final installment to the famed Nike Kobe 11 “Muse Pack” drops next week, Nike CEO Mark Parker identifies with Bryant in this uniquely crafted new rendition of his final playing shoe.

A mentor of Bryant’s as well as a friend, Parker credits Kobe as one of the brand’s top collaborators and a living testament to those to those that made their goals a reality.

Clearly the admiration between the two goes deep, which is why the Nike Kobe 11 “Mark Parker” closes the collaborative series next Thursday, May 26, on SNKRS followed by a limited run on Nike.
