The Nike Kobe 5 Protro PE “PJ Tucker” is Kobe Bryant’s popular fifth signature performance Nike Basketball shoe dressed in a player exclusive colorway for PJ Tucker. As the NBA’s reigning footwear king, Tucker has worn practically every coveted basketball shoe, performance based or otherwise, at one point or another during his long playing career. Now, he receives a multicolor design on one of his favorite models to hoop in, the Nike Kobe 5 Protro. The upper displays bold red mesh detailing on the collar and heel. Dark grey reptilian patterns are located on both the mid-panel and perforated toe. A contrasting University Blue toe cap adds a pop of color to the front of the shoe. Other details of note include Sail overlays on the forefoot and eyelets, a dotted cream Swoosh on either side, and neon green cotton shoelaces against the white mesh tongue. The purple liner stands out against the black TPU clip with Bryant’s signature. Zoom Air technology is incorporated into the foam midsole for superior comfort whether on or off court.
