The Nike Kobe 8 Protro “Venice Beach” Is Back and Better than Ever

After nearly a decade since its initial debut, sneakerheads and basketball enthusiasts alike are hungrily anticipating the return of the Nike Kobe 8 “Venice Beach,” slated to hit shelves later this month.

The "Venice Beach" of the Kobe 8 colorway first made waves in 2013, instantly becoming a fan favorite. Its bold and dynamic design pays homage to the colorful energy of the iconic L.A. beach, where basketball games often unfold under the California sun. The sneaker boasts a striking multicolored engineered mesh upper, featuring a vibrant mix of blue, yellow, red, green, and grey hues. This kaleidoscope of colors not only reflects the spirit of Venice Beach but also adds a unique flair to any sneaker collection.

Kobe Bryant's legacy is honored with embroidered logos on the tongues, while his signature graces the heel counter, serving as a reminder of his unparalleled skill and influence on the game of basketball. However, this sneaker isn't just about style; it's also engineered to enhance performance on the court.

Equipped with updated technology, the Kobe 8 Protro delivers optimal support and cushioning for athletes striving to elevate their game. Foam midsole units, combined with Zoom Air cushioning, provide responsive comfort and energy return with every step and jump. Rubber outsoles offer exceptional traction, ensuring that players can make quick cuts and explosive movements with confidence.

Don’t miss out – the Nike Kobe 8 Protro “Venice Beach” will be available on Saturday, April 13th, in-store only. Contact your nearest DTLR location to check availability.
