Editor’s Notes: Kobe Bryant turned forty on August 23, and with August 24 declared as Kobe Bryant Day or Mamba Day in Los Angeles, the NBA legend is celebrated with an exclusive Kobe 1 Protro PE, designed in conjunction with LA-based streetwear heavyweight UNDEFEATED.
Four colorways are offered and designated to a particular city, the featured yellow/purple (La Brea), along with orange (Phoneix), red (Santa Monica) and green (Silver Lake) colorways, which is listed exclusively on Nike SNKRS.
Customers within a two-mile radius of UNDEFEATED Chapter Stores in Los Angeles and Phoenix were able to unlock these unique colorways, and schedule in-store pickups for Saturday and Sunday. Upon availability starting around 8 a.m., the full drop had sold out instantly. Were you lucky enough to cop?
In related news, Kobe Bryant revealed a new book ‘The Mamba Mentality: How I Play,’ dropping on October 23.
