Kobe 5 Protro “Lakers”
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. Instantly cleared out by way of the brand’s webstore and adjacent retailers, almost every current Kobe 5 Protro was gone and put on the contentious resale market, putting the Swoosh themselves in a tough spot as far as posthumous releases go.
