We just got a first look at one of the three upcoming Undefeated x Nike Kobe 5 Protro colorways, this edition being the luxurious “Hall of Fame” variant. 

We’ve been hearing about an Undefeated Nike Kobe 5 Protro collaboration all this year but due to the tragic passing of Kobe and Nike figuring out where to go from there with the star’ signature shoe, one shoe of the three-piece collection has finally surfaced. This edition dubbed, “Hall of Fame” points out exactly where the #24 Los Angeles Lakers jersey is headed. Featuring a more luxurious take to the common Lakers theme for this special variant, the upper arrives in Metallic Gold and Field Purple. The entire upper is bathed in Metallic Gold while the laces opt for the same luxe aesthetic. To better the design, a gradient Nike Swoosh is added in from pink to purple and then to blue which sets up the tongue and heel Undefeated and Kobe branding, sockliner, rubber midsole, and the rubber outsole to take on purple as well, the finishing touch to the special design.


The Undefeated x Nike Kobe 5 Protro “Hall of Fame” is set to release this upcoming Fall season although an official release date has not been announced just yet. The special pair will likely be gone quickly and will retail for $190 with a drop going down via Undefeated stores and Nike SNKRS. Check out the first look below and stay tuned for more images of this pair and the other two never before seen sneakers expected to surface very soon.
