In 2022, Kobe Bryant’s estate signed a new deal with Nike to ensure we receive more releases of his signature shoe. Furthermore, the new partnership has lead to a youth basketball center in Southern California, and proceeds from select releases donated to the Mambacita Sports Foundation. Looking ahead of what’s to come, the Nike Kobe 8 Protro ‘Radiant Emerald’ will debut Spring 2024.
This marks one of two color options of the Kobe 8 Protro scheduled to release in 2024. The other pair will also feature a simplistic theme, while highlighted in ‘Court Purple’.
This Nike Kobe 8 Protro comes dressed in a White and Radiant Emerald color combination. Currently, images have yet to leak. However, due to the color description, the shoes will feature mostly White throughout with Emerald accents on the Swoosh logo, liner, laces, and the rubber outsole. You can also expect the signature Kobe logos throughout, his signature by the heel, as well as Nike branding. As for the technology, you can expect engineered mesh on the upper, no-sew synthetic overlays, leather around the collars and heels, and a plastic heel counter. Lastly, the shoes come with a full-length Lunarlon midsole and Zoom Air cushioning.
