Nike To Celebrate Kobe Bryant’s Legacy This Week #MambaWeek

Earlier this year, we lost a legend. The tragic passing of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna Bryant, and several others on January 26th put a screeching halt on the world of sports and the whole world in general as the hoops community froze in shock. Since then, it’s been an ongoing mourning period, and finally, Nike has announced its plans to honor the Black Mamba with a full week dedicated to continuing his lasting legacy.  Beginning tomorrow, August 23rd, Mamba Week will move forward with three key efforts – a $1 million donation to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation, the continued support of the Mamba League, and special retail drops.

Tomorrow, we’ll see the release of the Kobe 5 Protro “Big Stage Parade”, an amalgam of the famed Big Stage colorway from the 2010 NBA Finals and the graphic mosaic seen in the Championship Parade PE. On Tuesday the 24th aka Mamba Day, the “Lakers” colorway will be available with a classic purple and gold. In addition to the footwear, Nike and the NBA will release a limited number of Kobe Bryant jerseys.

In addition to the confirmed releases on the 23rd and 24th, the Kobe 5 Bruce Lee and Kobe 5 Undefeated are also expected to drop later this year.
