One of the most notable Kobe colorways Nike Basketball ever produced, the “Chaos” was inspired by Heath Ledger‘s legendary portrayal of the Joker in 2008’s The Dark Knight, a role that garnered a posthumous Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Bryant was a noted fan of the film and how Ledger fully immersed himself in the Joker role — an understandable connection, as the Los Angeles Lakers guard was similarly obsessive in his approach to the game of basketball. This manifested itself in the “Chaos,” a physical, powerful representation of Kobe’s need to achieve his goals at all costs.
Deep and rich backstory aside, the “Chaos” presents a movie-inspired look that’s undeniably striking. Its fused synthetic upper features a slightly iridescent purple base, accented by white trim and a white midsole. Neon green appears on the tongues’s sheath logo badges, heel clip’s Kobe signature, midfoot Swooshes and outsole. Laces bear the distinct red and black dotted patterning against a backdrop of ballistic mesh, one of the more subtle fixtures next to the slight paint splattering atop the midsole. The athlete’s signature can also be found elegantly stamped along the heel, incorporating all the finer points even down to the insole graphic. Combined, these colors provide a nod to the menacing hues worn by the Clown Prince of Crime.
As this is a Protro release, the tech has been upgraded for the modern-day game as well. The upper’s construction is simplified for a more comfortable feel, but retains its signature Flywire for support while maintaining support and increasing impact protection. Updates to the tooling include a bigger Zoom Air unit in the forefoot and softer foam in the midsole. Capping off the design is the outsole’s traction pattern, which has been scaled down to increase the surface area for grip.
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
Why are Kobe shoes so good?
Compared to other Nike signature shoes, the line designed for Kobe has always focused on sports performance rather than the aesthetics of Instagram or endorsements of rappers. Since Bryant switched from adidas to Nike in 2003, his signature shoes have become synonymous with performance and attention to detail
