The Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Protro is the first-ever "Retro" release of Kobe Bryant's first signature shoe with Nike, the Zoom Kobe 1. Kobe Bryant himself came up with the word "Protro", a play on the word "Retro". This updated version appears the same as the original, but features modified cushioning and construction (or Performance + Retro). A "Mamba Day" colorway is scheduled to hit retailers on April 13th as well as a "Close Out" version the very next day.
Undefeated is celebrating the launch of their new Hong Kong chapter store by dropping a super-limited version of their Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Protro collaboration.

The only way to obtain this rare issue is to shop at the new Undefeated Hong Kong store on Saturday, July 21st; those who spend at least a specific amount will be automatically entered into a giveaway raffle for one of five pairs. In addition to the giveaway opportunity, Undefeated Hong Kong will also release special product to commemorate the grand opening.
