Nike Makers Lab Brings Out Creativity & Kobe Fanatics

lead image by @aaronkkai

Out of the box artists may be gaining on basketball fanatics in regards to defining sneaker culture in 2018, but make no mistake, LA has never had a shortage of either.

Coming out in a big way for the All Star Weekend festivities, the Nike Makers of the Game space opened on a work day with Black Mamba fanatics, aspiring designers and Supreme soaked swaggers all taking time to line up for a chance at the UNDFTD x Nike Kobe 1 Protro and a chance to put in their 10% on the Swoosh’s smooth DIY lineup.

Similar to the AF1 custom spaces that popped up over the globe for the shoe’s famed 35th anniversary, this creative co-working space in downtown LA offered attendees the chance to dip-dye, airbrush, stamp, scribble and over-brand the likes of the Air Force 1, Air More Money, Vandal High and Air Huarache.

Weaving through the same LA traffic Drake made mention on of “Only,” arriving at the Makers Lab was well worth the trek. Upon entrance, a variety of Ekins were on site to slap fives and big-up designs while everything was on the table to make your 1-of-1s as wild, extra or just plain true to the wearer as could be.

Going the airbrush way on my left pair while keeping it player on the right side, the finished product turned out perfectly unfinished as I can doodle and dye these from home as I un-DS them around Austin. I must say, while I’m super stoked on my Air Force 1s the Air More Moneys people were customizing with added Swoosh styling and scribble details like a young KG were the top of the pops to me.

Exiting the space early due to flu like symptoms attained days earlier on the road, making my own Nikes in the city that Kobe introduced me to as a kid couldn’t have been any doper. Perhaps even better than making them though? Dipping out early and talking kicks with all the LA locals that camped out to get the UNDFTD x Nike Kobe 1 Protros. As someone that works as a creative but lives for hoops, it couldn’t have been cooler than chopping it up with fellow fans that grew up on Bean and lit up once they heard he was going to be at the space later that day.

While everyone won’t be able to get a pair of the UNDFTD Kobes, it’s hard to imagine a better roll out for the Protro line than this. Setting things off in the city he made his name with the shop he rolled up to in a DeLorean is right on time, setting the stage for one of the best signature reboots in time.

Come next year in Charlotte, could we see both worlds collide even more? Makers Lab Kobes, Huaraches or other hoop models of the performance, retro or Protro variety? I can personally say the only thing cooler than wearing around my 1-of-1 Forces would be playing in 1-of-1 Kobes. Hmmmmmm…….

Thanks to Nike for the opportunity, looking forward to see what Charlotte holds in 2019.

Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Protro Releases February 17th


Nike Zoom Kobe 1  Protro Release Date

Kobe Bryant and Nike Basketball recently unveiled the first retro part of the updating line. The first to make a retail appearance will be the Nike Kobe 1 Pronto.

This updated version of the Nike Zoom Kobe 1 carries the same aesthetic but has been upgraded with 2018 technology. The result is the translation of the shoe Bryant famously scored 81 points in on January 22, 2006, to the performance needs of today. Nike Basketball footwear product director Tony Grosso and his team focused on reducing weight and evolving production to eliminate pieces of the original Zoom Kobe I that were no longer needed.

Another push was to improve the shoe’s cushioning. Nike Zoom Air has come a long way in the last 13 years and the team was able to use those advances to add a better system for performance athletes, specifically in the form of a Zoom bag setup with a rocker and ride that is smoother than the original. They were also able to improve the ride by eliminating foam and decreasing the size of the carbon fiber shank to create a more engineered feel.

Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Protro Release Date

The Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Protro is scheduled to release at select Nike Basketball retailers including online at Nike.com on February 17th, 2018. Retail price is set at 5. Continue to scroll below to check out more images which will give you a closer look.
