Kobe Bryant’s Zoom Kobe 1 Protro silhouette has become one of the most popular retro Nike basketball sneakers this year, releasing in a number of intriguing colorways and collaborations. Gaining popularity during this year’s All-Star Weekend in February due to a collaboration with LA-based UNDFTD, the Protro has been set up for immense success. Next up for the modernized version of Kobe’s first Nike is the return of an OG color scheme from the first version that sports a combination of white, black, and red. Equipped with All-Star details that include those words underneath its tongue as well as a star along its lace unit, this Protro celebrates the illustrious career of one of the all-time great hoopers in history.
In 2006, Bryant wore a similarly-colored version of the Kobe 1 that swapped out the presence of black here with Royal blue to match his Western Conference uniform. A special edition insole can be seen on this version as well, with Houston, Denver, LA, and Atlanta printed on it in white. Peep a detailed set of images for this brand new Protro below and stay tuned for a specific release date next month.
