The new king of LA paid proper respect to the previous king of LA with a pair of Lakers-inspired UNDFTD x Nike Kobe 1 Protro PEs during a uniform fitting photoshoot.
Donning a golden camo as the upper, this Nike Kobe 1 Protro worn by LeBron is yet another PE edition made by the folks at Los Angeles boutique Undefeated. The sneaker sports the boutique’s logo prominently at the heel while purple Undefeated logos complete the purple and gold look.
LeBron has taken a lot of heat for joining the Los Angeles Lakers — both online and in Cleveland — and several murals celebrating LeBron have been destroyed or vandalized. However, this latest round of photos seems like the proper way for the King to introduce himself to LA while paying homage to Kobe Bryant, a legend that spent 20 years in the City of Angels.
The shoe itself is a PE tailor-made for LeBron James so it is quite unlikely that we will ever see an official release of this UNDFTD x Nike Kobe 1 Protro. Regardless, this is still a nice way to introduce yourself to a new city. Are you not entertained?
