It’s only right that out of respect for Kobe, his family, and the incredible legacy he left behind, we give Nike all of the time they need to roll out any of his products again. Before today, we knew that the Swoosh had plans of more Kobe 5 Protros in the pipeline including a Lakers-inspired colorway, as well as a Finals/Parade makeup. However, it looks as though yet another one has been confirmed as official images of the alternate “Bruce Lee” variation have now loaded up; essentially confirming that a release is in order. First previewed towards the end of last month, this Protro pair keeps its iconic red claw marks in tact, but remixes its color story with uppers reflective of the martial artist’s “Enter The Dragon” black and white uniform. Adjacent to this arrives subtle dashes of yellow accents atop the heel’s signatures and achilles panel. Scroll below to view a detailed look, and keep it locked for its release likely on Nike.com alongside its OG yellow/black colorway.
In other Swoosh news, the Nike Dunk Hi is returning in several colorways next year.
