“It just didn’t fit right with everything I stood for, with the Mamba Brand.” That’s Kobe Bryant on the subject of retros, revealing that the future hall of famer is perpetually forward-looking, even in retirement. So while Kobe has always been opposed to reissuing one of his older signature sneakers, he would eventually assent to the idea of a performance retro. Consequently, the Mamba and Nike are now set to launch the Zoom Kobe 1 Protro, a shoe three years in the making. While the aesthetic is true to the original, the performance benefits are up to 2018 standards, including reduced weight, revised Zoom Air cushioning and a smaller carbon fiber shank for a more engineered feel. Look for the Zoom Kobe 1 Protro to launch February 17th at nike.com and select Nike retailers.

Release Date: 2/17/18 (Saturday)

Footwear Flashback // Kobe & LeBron Go Head to Head on MLK Day

Facing off for the first time since winning gold together as members of the Redeem Team, Kobe Bryant and his revitalized Los Angeles Lakers hosted LeBron James and his Cavs on Martin Luther King Jr. Day back in 2009.

With both teams poised as serious playoff contenders, the game had major spotlight due its holiday placement and the fact that LeBron had gotten the best of Kobe the last five showdowns.

Not this time.

Lacing up a PE pair of the Nike Zoom Kobe IV, the man selling ankle insurance was also giving out buckets and handing out dimes as he dropped a cool 20 points and impressive 12 assists on James and the Cavs.

Not one to not show up, LeBron may have lost the road matchup but he did bring it on foot and in the box score, lacing up the Nike Zoom LeBron VI “LA” and putting up a game-high 23 points.

Peep the footwear and the highlights from this MLK matchup from 2009 in the photos below.

Nike Kobe A.D. Mid “Port Wine” // Release Date

Yesterday it was officially announced that recently retired NBA Hall of Famer, Kobe Bryant, would write, produce, and star in his very own basketball focused ESPN show, Detail. The show – which airs this March – will orbit one of Bryant’s favorite things to do: breakdown basketball by watching game tape.

Beans hoops analysis is among the best of any former player. The same can be said of his signature collection with Nike. Its continuance since he stepped away from the game largely falls on the Kobe A.D.; a new iteration of the Mid drops at the top of next month.

Two slash marks appear at the heel of this edition in strategically sloppy paint splatter while the paneling is pronounced with tri-Swoosh branding. A faux snakeskin is seen at the ankle collar joined with a dominant suede baselayer.

Take a closer look at this Nike Kobe A.D. Mid “Port Wine” below and expect the release on February 1, 2018.

Nike Reveals Kobe Bryant’s Mamba Rage Silhouette

As both Nike and Kobe Bryant attested to before his retirement from the NBA, his signature collection has and will continue long after his jerseys were lifted into the rafters at Staples. The newest addition to that collection is revealed today in the form of the Nike Mamba Rage.

Although not deviating far from the Nike Kobe A.D. series, the low-cut model pulls from the aforementioned style while expressing its individuality through scorpion graphics at the heel while foundational patterning around the mudguard also heighten distinction. Bryant’s logo is placed at the tongue as with the A.D. while similar midsole tooling positions the shoe with stability.

The Nike Mamba Rage is currently making the rounds at select retailers in Asia. U.S. release details have not yet been announced.
