Overall, the Nike Kobe 8 Protro is a sneaker that a lot of fans are eager to see make a comeback. Of course, there haven't been many Kobe sneakers on the market as of late. A lot of this has to do with Nike losing the Kobe brand a few years ago. However, they have gotten the brand back and they are looking to relaunch it all together. This is huge news for all of the sneakerheads out there. Moreover, this is an even bigger deal for all of Kobe's fans.

With the Nike Kobe 8 Protro set to make its big return, we are starting to get some teasers for new colorways. After all, if you want a new shoe to sell, you're going to have to produce a plethora of new offerings.

Firstly, the shoe begins with a white upper. Secondly, we get a white Nike swoosh and a white midsole. Oh, and we also get a white tongue and white laces...and we get a white a insole. Pretty well the entire sneaker here is white, except for a bit of the outsole which is black. That said, this a very clean colorway and we think a lot of people are going to be into it.
