Kobe Bryant (1978-2020) inspired people around the world with his ability on the basketball court and his work ethic off it.
During Mamba Week, Nike will champion Kobe’s legacy and the Mamba Mentality that so fittingly represents the athlete and the man through three key efforts: providing a $1 million donation to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation, amplifying Kobe’s message through the Mamba League and extending Kobe’s legacy of inspiration and innovation through select Kobe products.
The Kobe 5 Protro ‘Big Stage Parade’ which pays tribute to the Big Stage colorway from the 2010 NBA Finals and graphic mosaic used on the Championship Parade PE will release on August 23rd. On August 24th which is Mamba Day, the Kobe 5 Protro ‘Lakers’ will release. Last up is the Kobe 5 Protro ‘EYBL’ which debuts on August 29th. Retail price is set at $180 each.
