Nike Has Finally Released Kobe’s Posthumous 5 Protro ‘Big Stage’ Sneaker

Following Kobe Bryant’s departure in January, the basketball community has continued to mourn. However, the legacy of the championship-winning “Mamba” has persevered, serving as an inspiration for fans, connoisseurs, and players of the sport. One of the most prominent remembrances of Bryant’s illustrious career is his posthumous sneaker line, garnering heavy debate surrounding future releases, and whether they should be shelved out of respect, or carry the “Kobe” name. Now, Nike has revealed the Kobe 5 Protro “Big Stage” — a heritage-focused shoe revolving around the unison of the Kobe 5 “Big Stage Home” and “Parade” PE.

The Kobe 5 Protro “Big Stage” takes on a dynamic composition that represents a duality of color, arriving in a split black/white silhouette. On its exterior, fans of the aforementioned shoe will find that it’s been accented with a multitude of tasteful golden traits, as well as notable “Parade” print on its lateral and medial side. Golden swooshes and equally-hued heels provide a striking contrast against the sneaker’s busy upper, while the basketball star’s signature can be seen inlaid across its rear. Pair this with the undeniably “clean” aesthetic of the Big Stage’s subdued siding, and you’ve got a perfect formula for one of the most sought-after shoes of the season. Head over to NiceKicks’ website, where the shoe is currently (and rightfully) sold out, to learn more about the $180 icon.
