While we all still struggle to come to terms with the untimely death of Kobe Bryant, we’re still waiting for the chance to once again lace the immortal Black Mamba energy.
Originally teased by Anthony Davis during All-Star Weekend in Chicago, the Nike Kobe 5 Protro ‘Lakers’ is a team-centric colourway printed with graphic LA Lakers insoles. Composed with ice-cold translucent outsoles, and a plastic heel emblazoned with Kobe’s signature, the Kobe 5 ‘Lakers’ features EVA midsoles with huge Zoom Air units (double the size of the OG Kobe 5!).
The Nike Kobe 5 Protro ‘Lakers’ recently appeared on the SNS website with a drop date of April 1. Nike representatives, however, are stating that the sneaker will not release on this date.
As always, keep it locked to Sneaker Freaker for further updates.
