2024 may be a special year for Nike and Kobe sneakers with the Kobe 8 Protro releasing in a handful of new colorways like this “Court Purple” variation.

Looking to follow up on the Triple White Kobe 8 Protro that’s scheduled to release for Kobe Day 2023 (8/24), it looks like Nike will have a clear vision for 2024 with a few Spring releases surfacing today. Set for a White and Court Purple makeover, the offering will feature a classic two-tone design with a white mesh upper accented by Court Purple accents across the Swoosh logos, lacing system, and inner sockliner. Kobe’s signature logos will be placed on the tongues while Kobe’s signature will accent the lower ankles. To complete the makeover a white rubber midsole and purple outsole are featured underneath. While not a purple and gold offering, this renditions alliance can be found in Southern California.


The Nike Kobe 8 Protro is set to release next year in the Spring via select Niek Basketball retailers and (Nike SNKRS). The retail price is expected to be set at $180.
