There could be a “Lakers” Nike Zoom Kobe 5 Protro dropping at some point next month, according to rumors reported on by Sneakerfiles. According to the rumors, the sneaker that was worn by Anthony Davis during the NBA All Star Game could be released on March 26.
Following Kobe Bryant’s tragic passing last month, Kobe product sold out on Nike’s site, prompting rumors that the brand actually pulled the product from its online store. This was apparently not the case though, as a Nike spokesperson revealed the product had, in fact, sold out.
Nike has yet to announce how it will handle releases of Kobe’s revamped signature line of sneakers in the future, after a Nike Zoom Kobe 5 Protro drop was reportedly cancelled earlier this month.
The sneaker in question is dressed in the Los Angeles Lakers’ black, gold, and purple color scheme. Stay tuned for further information.
