The Nike Kobe 5 Protro Bruce Lee is a shoe holy grail that our fearless leader Chris Chase (aka Nightwing2303) has never owned…till now. He tried for them originally in 2010 and when they returned as Protro last year. We all know what’s happened to the Kobe Bryant shoe market over the past year so his luck was…not great.
Luckily, WearTesters contributor Evan Miranda was able to cop a pair at his local spot in Spain and offer them to Chris for retail plus shipping. Now, all that’s left for Chris to do is trade them for his size. Well, and do a review. Always gotta get that review up for our loyal audience.
Click play above to watch Chris’ thoughts on this iconic colorway and get lots of fun facts on the Kobe line.
