Known as one of the most coveted Kobe colorways of all time, the Kobe V Bruce Lee made a come back in 2020. The Kobe V Bruce Lee originally debuted in 2010, the year that Kobe won his final championship. This week, Nike is adding this iconic colorway to its Protro series, a Kobe line that meshes retro silhouettes with modified cushioning and construction.
The Kobe V Protro Bruce Lee is inspired by two classic Bruce Lee films, Game of Death and Enter the Dragon. Black and Yellow paneling on the upper pays homage to the one-piece jumpsuit that Lee wore in Game of Death (famously duplicated in Kill Bill), while the red scratch marks on the lateral side pay tribute to the final fight sequence from Enter The Dragon.
