Kobe Bryant's fifth signature sneaker with Nike, the Nike Kobe 5, is one of the Black Mamba's most popular sneakers with Nike. The Swoosh is bringing back the sneaker in Protro form in October 2024 with the X-Ray colorway. Following this return, the model will launch in a University Red colorway in Spring 2025, with this season seeing another colorway in the form of an Eggplant Kobe 5 Protro.

The Eggplant colorway is a nod to some of Nike Basketball's most beloved releases, incorporating a striking iridescent finish reminiscent of classic models like the recent LeBron 4 and retro of the classic Foamposite. The Kobe 5 Protro Eggplant features eggplant hues across the crinkled leather on the toe, midfoot, and tongue, offering a dynamic and glossy appearance. The sneaker includes black faux snakeskin on the mudguard and black fused TPU overlays, complementing the purple tones. Golden accents enhance the aesthetic, adorning the Swoosh and the Kobe logo on the tongue, adding a touch of elegance. The design is completed with a black foam midsole and a contrasting eggplant and black rubber outsole, providing both style and functionality on the court.

The Nike Kobe 5 Protro Eggplant will release in Spring 2025 through Nike and select retailers online and in-store. Available in men’s and GS sizes, the sneaker will retail for $190 and $120, respectively.
