Model: Kobe 5 Protro
Key Features: A nod to Kobe Bryant's Hall of Fame induction, the Kobe 5 Protro boasts a gold-colored textured upper, with mesh toe boxes and side paneling. Scaly overlays have been applied, in addition to crimson and red Swooshes. In the middle of the Swoosh branding you will find the numbers 24, 10, and 8, referencing Kobe's jerseys worn for the Los Angeles Lakers and Team USA. The tongues and heels bear Bryant's Mamba logo and UNDEFEATED's five strike insignia, while the insole lists out Kobe's various accomplishments.
Release Date: TBC
Editor’s Notes: UNDEFEATED and Nike are continuing their collaborative efforts with yet another release celebrating the late Kobe Bryant. While two pairs reference the 1996 NBA Draft when Bryant was picked 13th overall, the third iteration of the Kobe 5 Protro looks ahead to his Hall of Fame induction.
The aptly titled "Hall of Fame" UNDEFEATED x Nike Kobe 5 Protro was first teased in August, but now as we draw closer to a release, official imagery of the sneaker has surfaced. A drop date has yet to be confirmed, however, but reports are suggesting the shoe is likely to arrive by the end of 2020, ahead of Kobe's induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame next spring.
