It’s hard to believe that Kobe Bryant‘s 81-point performance against the Toronto Raptors was actually 13 years ago.
After all the NBA Hardwood Classics, reruns and commercials that made fun of Jalen Rose who caught those buckets, Nike next month will soon return the shoe Bryant wore when he posted those historic numbers.
A simple yet potent Lakers theme fortifies this classic Zoom Kobe 1 that will now release in Protro form. Style Home whites overtakes the mid-cut frame which finds Court Purple and black accents its secondary.
The retro is meant to honor the 13th anniversary of that historic game and last years return of Bryant’s debut Nike signature shoe as a performance-retro.
Expect the Nike Zoom Kobe 1 Protro “81 Points”this January in Europe. US release details remain forthcoming.
