After a week of stellar releases already, get ready for Culture Kings to drop the Nike Kobe 6 Protro “POP”. The “POP” a.k.a Playoff Pack features a simple white, black and yellow colour scheme inspired by the Lakers’ 2011 home threads. An infamous season which featured Kobe and the Lakers chasing a three-peat and Kobe fresh off winning his 5th Career Ring and 2nd Finals MVP.
Now, almost 10 years after the Mamba brought it to the court, Nike is re-releasing the “POP” in Protro form to honour the late great basketball player Kobe Bryant.
The legendary colourway features a white, scaly upper framed in black and accented with bright yellow. This includes black Swooshes on the inside and outside, Kobe logos on the white tongues and black heel clips. Lower, sleeker and faster-looking than before, the Protro is fitted with a large, flexible Air Zoom turbo unit, responsive foam, and low-profile traction for improved court feel.
As Nike & Kobe Bryant's estate choose to come to an end, you know the Nike Kobe Protro series are going to hit a little harder. Could this be one of the last Kobe footwear drops? 👀
