Without a doubt, Kobe Bryant‘s passing left an irreplaceable void in the world of basketball, but with All-Star Weekend having just finished, it’s now ever-clear that his memory will live on for generations to come. But while many have immortalized the legend through customs or the wearing of some of the most collectible in his line of signatures, it’s what comes next that will further cement his legacy posthumous. With the previously confirmed currently postponed, there’s still some that have yet to be officially announced — this “Lakers” inspired Nike Kobe 5 Protro being just one of what’s coming for the future. Seen first on-court by way of Anthony Davis, the pair covers in sultry purples, outlining the various separations with gold-adorned line work. Elsewhere, black hits of taping and TPU supports sprawl from front to back, signed along the latter for further nod to the Black Mamba. Though currently rumored for release later this season, it’s still unclear as to how Nike will handle further Kobe product so the date is most certainly subject to change.
