Black Mamba fans across the globe can rejoice because today marks the official relaunch of Kobe‘s signature line with Nike. No fans are as dedicated as Kobe Bryant fans and footwear photographer Tyler Mansour proves just that as the Makeshift Studio founder created a completely custom Kobe 8, inspired by the Lakers all-star’s alma mater — Lower Merion High School.
The kicks are crafted under Mansour’s creative outlet Makeshift Studio and their presentation resembles the Philadelphia-based school’s signature colors. A deep maroon covers the heel cages, which feature Kobe’s signature, joining the synthetic toe tip overlays and midsoles that are invigorated with the Kobe Sheath insignias. Meanwhile, the mesh base layer arrives in a contrasting tan shade, coordinating with a caramel-tinted leather tongue. The heel panels are painted in a light beige, boasting snakeskin scales arranged within a geometric map.
Which is better Kobe Protro 5 or 6?
and it’s pretty much a matter of preference. if you like having that more low to the ground feel then the kobe 5 wins that by just a little bit but if you like having a little bit more cushion. and impact protection then the whole b6 would be your best bet of the two.Mar 6, 2021
