Kobe Bryant has continually pushed the boundaries. Likewise, his signature Kobe 1 Protro takes the original Kobe 1 to a new level with a lighter construction and added full-length Zoom Air cushioning. This advanced reissue keeps alive the OG “Blackout” colorway first seen in 2006. Kobe knew that his mental approach would be the key to unlock the farthest boundaries of physical performance, and that’s why the words “Black Out” were strategically placed as reminders on the shoe. The ‘Blackout’ colorway spurs on the relentless effort – both mental and physical – required to excel at the highest levels.
