Having to cancel’s last year’s Elite Youth Basketball League, or simply EYBL, due to COVID-19, we didn’t get to see the Nike Kobe 5 Protro “EYBL” on the court from elite high school prospects across the country in 2020. With teams announced for the 2021 EYBL season, @regularolty on Instagram has posted a sneak peek of the Nike Kobe 6 Protro “EYBL.”
The upper in eggplant purple towards the midsole that gradients into a lavender into the tongue. A black Mamba logo is seen on the tongue with an all-black speckled midsole and external heel counter with the EYBL logo on the back. As far as technical specs, the Kobe 6 Protro uses a Cushlon midsole and a Zoom Turbo unit in the forefoot, which was introduced in the Nike Kyrie 5.
Information about whether this will hit retailers like previous EYBL editions or strictly be a PE for EYBL participants is still unknown. We will see them on-court this summer at EYBL tournaments and showcased at Nike Peach Jam which is the premier event of the EYBL. Check out the photos below and check our Sneaker Release Dates page for any information about a release date.
