DeMar DeRozan is one of the torch bearers for Nike Basketball‘s Kobe Bryant line, and the San Antonio Spurs guard/forward’s latest Mamba-themed release is a Kobe 5 Protro “Zebra.” First worn by DeRozan at the beginning of the 2019-20 NBA season, the “Zebra” mixes a simple color palette with bold printed details for a stylish monochromatic look.

Grey and white patterns coat the entirety of the upper — quarter panels display the zebra print that gives the shoe its name, while the synthetic forefoot and mesh heel use a warped, kaleidoscopic checkerboard pattern. Swooshes are heat-pressed on in jet black, with a touch of iridescent gray appearing behind the black sheath logo on the tongue. Black collar trim and black heel pieces with Kobe Bryant’s signature complete the top half. Moving down to the lower regions, light gray midsoles are made of soft EVA foam and contain twice as much Zoom Air cushioning as the original Kobe 5 from 2009.

The Nike Kobe 5 “Zebra” is set to release via retailers like Nice Kicks on September 18, and is priced at $180 USD.
