As Kobe Bryant famously wore #24 on his jersey for most of his career, it seems almost serendipitous that 2024 is shaping up to be the year his sneakers return full force. Since Nike has agreed to terms with his estate, they have been working behind the scenes to ramp up the design and production of the Kobe signature line. A few releases are already lined up for the latter part of 2023, and new reports suggest that 2024 will be even more bountiful.
White looks to be the predominant color on a host of new Kobe 8 Protos set to hit the market with the announcement of the “Triple White” and the rumored “Court Purple” opting for the icy canvas. The Nike Kobe 8 Proto “Radiant Emerald” looks to continue that trend with early mock-ups showing an all-white upper with highlights of radiant-emerald on the swoosh, sockliner, and midsole.
The Nike Kobe 8 Proto “Radiant Emerald” is rumored to be released sometime in early 2024, perhaps as part of the Swoosh’s Spring lineup. The pair will run $180 and be released on the SNKRS App and other retailers. As always, stay tuned to our Twitter and Instagram for all the latest info on sneakers, streetwear, and collectibles.
