Nike is going to start doing retros of Kobe Bryant’s sneakers. For NBA All-Star Weekend, Nike will be releasing the Kobe 1 Protro model in the “Del Sol” colorway on Saturday, February 17.
Here are more details on the colorway and the “Protro” model, via Nike:
Kobe Bryant is always transforming, and so too is his signature footwear. When it came to crafting the reissue of one of his most coveted signatures, Bryant and team chose to focus not on mere recreation, but on meticulous evolution.
The Kobe 1 Protro is a new iteration of the hardwood favorite born straight from the mind of Bryant, with a lighter construction and added full-length Zoom Air cushioning. Built to today’s performance standards, the icon returns in the original “Varsity Maize” colorway.
These sneakers will release at 11:30 a.m. EST on Nike SNKRs. I would not be surprised if these are limited and will sell out, so Kobe fans and collectors should not take the release lightly if they are planning to cop.
