Fans of both NBA legend Kobe Bryant and retro basketball kicks can soon pick up an updated iteration of a classic silhouette worn by the baller.
Arriving next week is a refreshed take on the Nike kicks Bryant rocked during the 2006 NBA All-Star Game. The Nike Kobe 1 Protro “Star Power” (also referred to as “All-Star”) boasts the colors of the iteration that once hit retail, which are slightly different than what hit the court during the game, with modern court-ready tech from the Swoosh.
The shoe boasts a red, white and black color palette, with black replacing the blue portion of the version Bryant wore on the court.
The kicks are executed with today’s performance features, including a carbon fiber composite plate for power transfer and a full-length Zoom Air unit for responsiveness.
The Nike Kobe 1 Protro “Star Power” will hit the SNKRS app on Aug. 17 at 10 a.m. ET and retail for $175.
