With news of Kobe Bryant and Nike’s contract coming to a close — likely for the sake of renegotiation — it was unlikely we’d see anything new come from the Black Mamba’s line-up of signatures. However, as unveiled this morning, UNDEFEATED has prepped the collaborative Kobe 5 Protro “Hall of Fame” for release on May 12th.
Revealed quite a while back in 2020, the colorway arrives cast in near full gold to appropriately celebrate Bryant’s induction into the Hall of Fame. And as part of the Laker’s colors, the metallic finish arrives complemented by purple hits along the lining, sole, and the tongue’s co-branded emblems. A subtle snakeskin finish etches right atop the upper as well, while the side Swoosh alternates between full purples along the medial and a red-led gradient opposite. What’s more, in appreciation for Kobe’s illustrious career, the latter dresses with “24 10 8” and the insole spells out a number of achievements.
For a closer look ahead of the release, see the imagery below. UNDEFEATED reports an incoming May 12th release likely via Undefeated.com.
