Kobe Bryant’s impact reached more than just basketball, in fact, his impact far exceeded sports in general. With resellers clambering to buy every piece of Kobe merchandise especially sneakers, one has to wonder if Nike will ever release another Kobe Bryant silhouette.
With that being said, many have wondered if the Kobe 5 Protro ‘Lakers’ colorway would see the light of day. Nike postponed the championship-inspired colorway originally and we’ve heard no follow up as to when or if they would release them, that is until now. It seems certain retailers have been listing March as a release date with some shops overseas already having them.
We now have official images which could only mean the Black Mamba’s signature shoe in the iconic Lakers Purple/Gold colors could be upon us. The release is rumored to hit on March 26th so hopefully we get a chance to see them at select stores and Nike SNKRS.
