Kobe Bryant’s fifth signature shoe just made its official performance retro return in the Chaos (Joker inspired colorway), as well as a NBA2K ‘Chaos’ alternate colorway. Expanding its collection of releases is the return of one of the model’s most notable staple colorways—the Nike Kobe 5 Protro ‘Big Stage’.
The original Kobe 5 ‘Big Stage’ release was a special pack that released during the August after the 2010 NBA Finals including two colorways of a ‘Home’ White pair and a ‘Away’ Black based pair. Both pairs featured a a “tattoo” like graphic of Kobe’s achievements from that NBA season, including his season stats to where he became the Lakers all-time leading scorer.
We’ve yet to receive information on whether or not the Black ‘Away’ colorway will be releasing, but according to Foot Locker Canada release calendar, the “White/Gold” Home pair is slated to release Friday, February 7th, 2020. A retail price has yet to be confirmed for the Home pair release per Nike’s end. Stay tuned as we update this article with further release details.
