It seems Nike is pulling back on releasing any products and apparel related to Kobe Bryant out of respect for the late and future NBA Hall of Famer. Being that Nike’s Kobe-related products are at a standstill, leaves plenty of room to speculate on upcoming releases with one hopefully being a new colorway of the Kobe 5 Protro. This basketball silhouette has now been unveiled in a new alternate “Bruce Lee” colorway.
Glossy black panels on the mid-foot and toe cap over a white leather base make up the majority of this silhouette. A lot of subtleties of the sneaker pays homage to the 1973 cult class film ‘Enter The Dragon.’ Hits of yellow on the heel tab can be seen as a representation of Kobe’s resilience as he over cane his achilles injury.
