Tensions are running high, with Black Mamba’s Tinseltown legacy under threat as big LBJ rides his horse into town.
Remember when the sneakerhead vigilante took to the streets to protect an image of Kobe Bryant defaced by LeBron James? We're two free throws from anarchy and someone’s obviously been in Nike’s ear, as Kobe’s first ever signature shoe — the Zoom Kobe 1 Protro — enjoys one of its strongest year's yet.
Taking design cues from the PEs Kobe wore during 2006’s All-Star game, the ‘All Star’ colourway ditches the royal blue detailing in favour of red and black blend that shares a lot of characteristics with the iconic Air Jordan 1 ‘Homage to Home’ design.
Now... whose home is it? MJ's for always and forever. I don't care from what town you rode in on.
Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Protro 'All-Star' drops on August 17 for $175.
