Nike Kobe 8 Protro White Gold FN0266-102

Although Kobe Bryant didn’t win a NBA Championship in the Nike Kobe 8, winning was always in his DNA. Celebrating his Mamba Mentality, Nike Basketball will debut a new colorway in Protro form during Summer 2024. Next up, we have the Nike Kobe 8 Protro ‘White Gold’.

For Kobe 8 releases, we have a solid lineup for 2024. So far, we have confirmed the ‘Venice Beach’ pair will return and two new colorways highlighted in ‘Court Purple’ and ‘Radiant Emerald’. While not confirmed, the shoes could be linked to Bryant being drafted by the Charlotte Hornets and traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. In addition, the brand will also debut a ‘Black Gold’ Kobe 4 Protro during the Holiday 2023 season.

This Nike Kobe 8 Protro sports a White and Metallic Gold color combination. Although we have confirmed the colorway, the actual blocking may differ. But, you can expect this pair to feature mainly White throughout with Metallic Gold accents on the Swoosh, Kobe branding on the tongue, liner, and his signature across the heel counter. Finishing the look is a solid White rubber sole.

Nike Kobe 8 Protro White Gold Release Date

You can expect the Nike Kobe 8 Protro ‘White Gold’ to release at select retailers and during Summer 2024. The retail price is $180. Also, the shoes will be available in full family sizing, allowing for more pairs to be produced. As soon as we have more information, we will make sure to update you.
