NBA’s best took the courts last night during the All-Star game and many new shoes were revealed. One of the best was worn by Anthony Davis, the Nike Kobe 5 Protro “Lakers”. 

Following the tragic loss of Kobe Bryant, it’s been a thought in many minds on how his Nike partnership will pan out in the future. Whether AD wearing a Lakers themed colorway of the Nike Kobe 5 Protro means anything about the partnership, we definitely can expect the very fresh edition to be releasing soon, maybe even as soon as next month.

Equipped with a synthetic upper in Lakers purple, black also plays a role across the shoe. Gold trimming adds into the Los Angeles theme while a black snakeskin print graces the heel. Silver Kobe branding shines on the tongue as a white midsole and icy translucent outsole finishes off the coveted design.


Upon the reveal, the Nike Kobe 5 Protro “Lakers” has been rumored to release next month on March 26th, 2020 at select retailers and While we wait for more details on the release check out the pair on AD himself and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for all the updates going forward.
