What You Need to Know: Another OG colorway of the Kobe 1 is getting the Protro treatment. First seen in 2006, the "Black/Varsity Purple" pair sports a black leather upper, purple suede panel on the medial side, and white Swoosh. Additional purple hits are used on the ankle collar, midsole, and tongue branding. To update the mid-2000s model for the modern game, the Kobe 1 Protro is given a more lightweight build and full-length Zoom Air cushioning. The pair will coincide with the release of Kobe Bryant's new book, The Mamba Mentality: How I Play.
