While Kobe Bryant didn’t wear this pair on the court, its association with his legacy and its vibrant design inspired by the lively atmosphere of Venice Beach ensure its enduring popularity among sneaker enthusiasts and collectors.

The OG colorway of the Kobe 8 Protro features a striking multi-color palette, including teal, red, yellow, and silver accents throughout the mesh upper. The turquoise hue adorns the model’s distinctive TPU heel counter, adding a touch of vibrancy to the shoe’s design. Complementing this, the medial side showcases bold yellow Swoosh logos against a backdrop of bright orange sock liners, creating a captivating contrast against the greyscale tones of the heel.
