First Look At The Nike Kobe 8 Protro “Champagne Gold”

Another team-based style emerges ahead of Fall 2024.

First Look At The Nike Kobe 8 Protro “Champagne Gold”

The Nike Kobe 8 is slowly re-positioning itself from prized collectors item to flagship basketball model. The Protro iteration, updated with modern-day tech and a restructured tongue, is confirmed to release beginning this Fall in a variety of team-based colorways, lending to the silhouette becoming one of the most commonly spotted sneakers on court later this year.

Joining the vast crop of colors that include grey, dark navy, and red is a light gold huge akin to bubbly champagne. That elegant shade covers the entirety of the Engineered Mesh and the upper layer of the mudguard, while black accents the Swoosh logo and the Black Mamba’s sheath on the tongue as well as the heel. A solid white rubber outsole sits below as the traction component.

These are likely to be dropping beginning this Fall 2024 season for $190; additionally, @knowing_kicks shares product SKU information, which can be found just below.
