The Nike Zoom Kobe 5 is finally getting its flowers as Nike launched the shoe’s Protro campaign at the beginning of the year. The delays as a result of the pandemic as well as the tragic death of Kobe and Gianna Bryant slowed down the original rollout that the Swoosh had in mind.
However, Nike correctly paid tribute to the late-great with its Mamba Week releases in honor of Bean and his legacy. Luckily, more Kobe 5s are on the way as a classic is returning.
The Nike Zoom Kobe 5 Protro “5 Rings” is next in line as the shoe cemented the importance of the Kobe 5 as it led the Mamba to his fifth championship victory. The colorway was originally released in the summer of 2010, following the title victory. The entire upper is etched with Kobe’s accomplishments and arrives in purple and yellow fashion with a gradient hit on the midsole.
We get a better look at the upcoming colorway. However, the Nike Zoom Kobe 5 Protro “5 Rings” is releasing overseas on September 30 as of now. There has yet to be an indication if these are releasing stateside in the future. Keep it locked on Nice Kicks as we await more details.
Anthony Davis debuted the Nike Zoom Kobe 5 Protro “5 Rings” during Game 3 of the NBA Finals. The Nike Kobe is releasing on October 15 as the shoe has emerged on the SNKRS app. Look for the pair to drop at select retailers as well.
