Nike Kobe V Protro “Chaos”
Release Date: January 3rd, 2020
Color: White/Cyber-Dark Grey-Bright Crimson
Style Code: CD4991-100
Inspired by the Mamba’s obsession with Heath Ledger’s Joker, the menacing colorway could not have retroed (or protroed) at a better time given that the purple-donning clown, portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, broke the box office record for any R-rated movie ever this year ($1.061 billion USD). The former Lakers-guard first wore this Joker-inspired pair on Christmas Day 2009 and its return stays faithful to its original volt and purple color palette, while receiving subtle, but pivotal performance upgrades.
