Back in September, Vanessa Bryant and Nike announced the collegiate programs that have been named to the inaugural "Mamba Program." The chosen schools included the University of Connecticut, the University of South California, the University of Oregon, Duke University, Louisiana State University, and the University of Kentucky. Now that the 2023–24 NCAA season is officially underway, we're beginning to see the exclusive Kobe sneakers each team are lacing up.

This month, the aforementioned schools have taken to social media to share their Player Exclusive Nike Kobe 8 Protro colorways on social media. The sneakers don the team colors of the respective schools and also feature team logos on the tongues. At the time of writing, the only program that has yet to officially unveil its Kobe 8 PE is the Oregon Ducks.

Of course, these Nike Kobe 8 Protro PEs were made exclusively for the players in the men's and women's basketball programs and will likely not be released to the public. Scroll for a closer look at each of the colorways below.
