With the news that Kobe Bryant and Nike’s contract ended, we were unlikely to see anything new coming from Black Mamba’s signing list. However, as unveiled this morning, UNDEFEATED has prepared the Kobe 5 Protro collaborative “Hall of Fame” for release on May 12.
The colorway arrives almost entirely gold to appropriately celebrate Bryant’s Hall of Fame induction. A subtle snakeskin finish is engraved at the top of the upper as well, while the side swoosh alternates between full purples along the median and a red gradient on the opposite. In addition, in recognition of Kobe’s illustrious career, the latter dresses in “24 10 8” and the insole describes a number of accomplishments.
