This Kobe 1 was worn by Kobe Bryant during the 2006 World Games and Nike Basketball has decided to return it to retail.
Like its 2006 progenitor this sneaker features a navy suede and white leather upper with red accenting showing up on the stitching, bordering the top lace hole, the tongue logos (which include a Kobe logo, “USA” and a Swoosh logo ) and the UPTEMPO on the rear heel. The midsole is white and red and includes a carbon fiber wrap around the heel, beginning at the midfoot. The outsole is tri-colored featuring red and white with navy at the tip of the shoe.
The Nike Kobe 1 Protro “USA” is supposed to release sometime in the remaining portion of 2018 at nike.com and select Nike Basketball retail locations. The sticker price is set at $175 USD.
