It’s no doubt that Kobe Bryant was one of the greatest to grace the game. Even in his rookie years, he showed determination and a drive to succeed. The guy was fearless! His final game, before retirement, showed that he was still on top and out-classing everyone else on the court.  

The traumatic helicopter crash came as a surprise to us all and to this day, it still hurts that Kobe isn’t here with us. For me the Kobe branded sneakers are a way of remembering his legacy and therefore I’m pleased to see that we finally have an official release date for the Nike Kobe 5 Protro Lakers.
