From the hallowed halls of Nike, there emerges a reincarnation – an ode to a legend and his legacy. On the horizon, as the anticipation had built, the eve of Mamba Day promises something spectacular. A phoenix, a resurrection of a sort, rises with the announcement of the Nike Kobe 8 Protro “Halo”, pushing the envelope of footwear fashion and technology.
August 24th – Mamba Day – will witness a spectacle as Nike brings forth a vision, previously glimpsed during the SNKRS “Live From the Archive” session a day prior. The once named “Triple White” avatar of the Kobe 8 Protro now graces us with a more celestial identity: the “Halo”. A brainchild of Vanessa Bryant, this collection sets the stage for an exciting array of Kobe Protro models set to dazzle in the coming times.
A luminous ensemble of pristine white bathes the shoe, evoking visions of serenity, reminiscent of the skies above. This low-top marvel champions one of Bryant’s most adored designs, and there’s no doubting its heavenly touch.
Shifting gears to its technical prowess, one can’t overlook the transformation it’s undergone from its initial 2012 make. Gone is the Lunarlon midsole, replaced now with the sophisticated React foam drop-in. Many loyalists of the original pair had shared whispers about the Lunarlon’s diminishing zest. But with the new React cushioning, Nike promises a robust and enduring cushioning experience.
A grand debut awaits the Nike Kobe 8 Protro “Halo” on August 23rd, making its way to the SNKRS app. Enthusiasts can revel in choices, for both adults and the young ones – Grade School sizes are available. But before that date, for those eager to catch a glimpse, detailed images have been shared below.
