The Nike Elite Youth Basketball League or EYBL has begun shipping out the exclusive Nike Kobe 5 Protro and KD 13 to this year’s young talent that showcase both silhouettes in summer-ready tones.

While the Summer Youth League has been canceled due to COVID-19, the league will still be sending the drip out to their athletes which will bring forth a Kobe 5 Protro and a KD 13. The Nike Kobe 5 Protro is set to feature a vibrant tie-dye upper while showcasing royal blue detailing on the tongue, laces, ankles, and sockliner while a black midsole and bright orange rubber outsole finish off the EYBL-exclusive design. Kevin Durant then dresses his 13th signature shoe in a bright psychedelic graphic that flows throughout the upper and tongue. A split Nike Swoosh in plum and salmon adorn the sides while a black midsole and volt outsole completes the Summer look. The young athletes will also receive matching sweats, shorts, tees, and basketballs.


Both the Nike Kobe 5 Protro and KD 13 EYBL 2020 will likely be exclusive to the league athletes but a release can come in the future so don’t rule out the possibility entirely. Check out detailed images of both pairs below and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for updates and more of the latest sneaker news.
