Nike Kobe 8 Protro “Mambacita”

Following Mamba Day 2024, Kobe enthusiasts anticipate another significant event as Nike continues to pay homage to the legacy of the Black Mamba through Nike Kobe 8 Protro release. Up next is May 1st, marking the birthday of Gigi Bryant — Kobe’s daughter tragically lost in the helicopter crash on January 26th, 2020.

In line with the “Mambacita” tradition, Nike and Vanessa Bryant collaborate to craft an exquisite white, gold, and black color scheme for a Kobe shoe. The Kobe 8 “Mambacita” showcases a refined butterfly pattern on its engineered mesh upper, complemented by golden accents adorning the Kobe sheath and embroidered Swoosh emblems on both sides. The heel features “Gigi” alongside her jersey number 2, while a distinctive golden hang-tag bearing the Mambacita wings logo completes the ensemble.

Looking ahead, the next Kobe release is slated for Father’s Day, featuring the green suede Nike Kobe 4 Protro “Girl Dad”, inspired by the green Philadelphia Eagles beanie Kobe wore in a touching photo of him and his daughter courtside.

To purchase the Kobe 8 “Mambacita”, mark your calendars for May 1st, 2024. Sizes range from M3.5/W5 to M18/W19.5, and will be available at selected Nike retail partners.
