Six months after the tragic passing of Kobe Bryant Nike is set to honor the Lakers legend with several sneaker drops on “Mamba week”.
Starting on Kobe’s birthday on Sunday, Aug. 23, Nike will release five Kobe Protro 5 sneakers and the proceeds will be donated to youth sports initiatives.
After a series of planning meetings that spanned months, Nike has confirmed an ongoing commitment to celebrating Bryant through product releases that will ultimately benefit funding for youth sports initiatives.
“Nike will continue to release Kobe Protro shoes, allowing the millions of fans he inspired around the world to keep Bryant’s legacy going,” the company said. “Nike will also continue to work with the NBA to release limited quantities of Bryant’s iconic Los Angeles Lakers jersey.”
