Nike's Kobe 1 Protro Celebrates the Lakers' Long History

The Lakers have of one of the most prestigious histories in the NBA, with some of the game’s biggest names taking to the court in the purple and gold. Nike’s latest release celebrates their pre-LA heritage, throwing back to their origins as the Minneapolis Lakers with a commemorative Kobe 1 Protro (really, it couldn’t be any other shoe?).

The baller sports the team’s old colours, using light grey on the upper and midsole, and blue on the collar and outsole. The shoe's insole celebrates each player who's number has been retired by the team

If you’re a diehard Lakers fan and want to slot these into your rotation, they’re available from NDC now.
