The Nike Kobe 8 Protro “Halo” Scheduled for a 23 August Release Date
Ahead of the reintroduction of the Black Mamba line.
[Update 11 Aug 2023] Official images of the Nike Kobe 8 Protro “Halo” have finally been unveiled. It turns out to be the same “Triple White” colorway that’s surfaced months prior before being given its official “Halo” name.
Nevertheless, the arrival of the silhouette on 23 August, Kobe Bryant’s birthday, will mark the reintroduction of the Swoosh’s Mamba line. Find the pair on Nike’s brick-and-click and select retailers come D-Day!
Ahead of the reintroduction of the Black Mamba collection come Mamba Day, Nike announced that it would be unveiling a new Kobe silhouette on 10 August via their SNKRS’ “Live from the Archive” segment. Furthermore, the shoe in question apparently, according to Vanessa Bryant, is an all-white Kobe 8 Protro “Halo” with more sylizations of the model in the pipeline.
The Swoosh teased the sneakers on Instagram with a short black-and-white video clip showing the pair obscured, the silhouette suspended above a basketball. Below the sneakers is a clock with the numbers turning till they reach “08:23:23”, Kobe Bryant’s birthday and presumably the pair’s launch.
Tune in to the unveiling on SNKRS if you’re living in North America! For the rest of the world, stay tuned for more details and images after.
