Nike Reveal Why Kobe Posted That Instagram Story

Kobe retros are coming! After Black Mamba posted a suggestive Instagram story, Nike have unveiled an update of 2005’s Zoom Kobe 1.

Taking a Six Million Dollar Man approach, Kobe rebuilt the OG sneaker with a full-length Air unit and lighter materials to make it better, stronger and faster. Behold: the Zoom Kobe 1 Protro.

The first colourway to retro is the OG ‘Varsity Maize’. Yellow shoots up from the outsole and coddles the heel, while black leather and a white Swoosh provide depth and contrast.

Those who take shots and exclaim ‘Kobe!’ can grab Protro on February 17 from Nike SNKRS.
