Nike continue the roll out of the Kobe line with 2 brand new colourways of the highly-coveted Kobe VIII Protros.
Both the 'Aqua' and 'Court Purple' pay homage to Kobe Bryant's unique and legendary career, being the only player in NBA history to have two numbers retired with the same team. The numbers are repeated boldly across the white mesh upper of the shoe in the corresponding colour. Accompanied with the arched mid-foot plate providing added support and stability, as well as an embroidered Swoosh logo and the iconic "Sheath" logo, this Protro iteration is one that is designed to catch eyes whilst also boasting as a high-level on-court performance shoe. Retail price is currently set at £165.
Currently in the UK, only Bouncewear London and Pro-Direct Hoops have the shoes available. Through Bouncewear, the Protros will only be available through the in-store raffle, which closes Thursday, February 8th with winners being notified on the same evening.
