The Nike Kobe 1 Protro “Mamba Day” released to celebrate Kobe Bryant on April 13, 2018. Two years after the inaugural Mamba Day in 2016, which was when Bryant played the final game of his legendary career, Nike marked the occasion by releasing a new sophisticated version of the Kobe 1 Protro. The shoe is constructed with a premium black leather upper with gold details on the Swoosh. There is also an inscription on the heel commemorating the date, 4/13/18. After first releasing on Mamba Day, the shoe received a surprise restock on Kobe Bryant Day, the August 24 date that includes both of Kobe's jersey numbers (8 and 24).
