April 13, 2016. Bryant’s final game as a Laker and signature sneaker of his 20-year career was strictly a low-top. The sneaker was made with a stronger Flyknit yarn to provide to be lighter and flexible than it’s been in the past. One of the most memorable moments of the Kobe 11 was Bryant’s 60-point performance against the Utah Jazz in his last time playing at STAPLES Center. The sendoff was, as expected, in Kobe fashion (shooting 50 times – kidding, Kobe fans) as he hung them up for good. Mamba Out.
