The Nike Kobe 5 Protro “Chaos” is a celebratory colorway of Kobe Bryant’s signature shoe that salutes the DC Comics villain character, the Joker. This popular and classic design from Nike Basketball was first issued back in 2009. Bryant wore the look for the Los Angeles Lakers’ Christmas Day game that season, and Nike officially released the shoe a day later. In 2020, the “Chaos” returned for the first time as a retro model. The upper features a Chameleon upper with Cyber Purple leather dotting the toe and mid-panel. White leather detailing extends along the eyelets and forefoot to the white rubber midsole with red speckle accenting. A Lime Green Swoosh appears on either side and dark red rope laces sit atop the grey mesh tongue. An Additional mesh is seen on the quarter panel. Red nylon and a grey plastic heel cup with Kobe Bryant’s signature in green, as well as his signature "Nike Kobe" emblem on the tongue, adds to the true-to-original design of this performance basketball shoe. Release date: January 3, 2020.
