Simply writing about Kobe Bryant is a hard task to do — very little able to truly sum up the impact he had on the world of basketball, sneakers, and culture in general. But with such a loss, it’s as difficult to distill grief, with many looking to celebrate the legend’s life via his line of eponymous Nike silhouettes.
As a nod to the championship-themed jackets that Kobe Bryant was seen wearing after his second and third NBA championships, this Nike Kobe 5 Protro “5X Champ” wears the Los Angeles Lakers’ team colors with a textured purple upper paired with black with gold accents. Other details includes a snakeskin patterned on the Black heel counter with Metallic Silver Kobe branding on the tongues. A White midsole atop an icy translucent outsole and Lakers-themed graphic insoles completes the design.
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
