Nike Kobe 5 Protro Celebrates Black Mamba’s 5 Rings!
Legends deserve legendary kicks. And what’s a better pair than one celebrating one of the Black Mamba’s big achievements? The new Nike Kobe 5 Protro “5 Rings” is a celebration of Kobe’s 5 rings with the Los Angeles Lakers. This pair would have been a great addition to the Black Mamba week we celebrated not too long ago but was delayed for some reason. And we’re expecting a big solo release for the Kobe Protro 5 Rings.
Nike Kobe 5 Protro 5 Rings Rocks Familiar Colors
Purple and yellow. Yellow and purple. We love us some team colors. And if Kobe is famous for anything, it’s his loyalty to the only NBA team he played with: The Lakers. And the sneakers honor this loyalty and the achievements Kobe accomplished during his career. The new Nike Kobe 5 Protro features an upper with a yellow front that gradually turns to purple. Moreover, the upper has the number 5 laser etched on it in all shapes and sizes! That’s obviously a reference to the five rings Kobe Bryant won with the Lakers. Finally, the midsole rocks a pretty solid purple-to-yellow gradient The swoosh and black mamba logos will come in yellow, and a translucent outsole completes the look!
It’s worth the mention that this pair released back in 2010 originally to celebrate Kobe’s fifth NBA championship. He won championships in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2009, and 2010 with the LA Lakers. But in Kobe’s words, Protro “is all about improving on what’s been and making it better for what’s to come”. So it’s pretty awesome that Nike Kobe 5 is getting the Protro treatment!
