Nike has begun the process of re-releasing some of Kobe Bryant's classic sneakers, something Kobe stans have long been waiting for. It started with the Kobe 1 Protro in 2018 and has continued this year with the Kobe 4 Protro, which recently released in the Hornets-themed "Draft Day" colorway.

According to @SoleHeatOnFeet, the Kobe 5 silhouette is scheduled to receive the retro treatment next year.

Images of the Kobe 5 Protro haven't surfaced yet, but it is being reported that one of the returning colorways is listed as "White, Black, and Metallic Gold." That particular color scheme lines up with the "Big Stage" Nike Kobe 5 that debuted in 2010.

It remains to be seen if that sneaker is indeed re-releasing in 2020, but we have plenty of time to speculate. Until then, check out some images of the 2010 "Big Stage" Nike Kobe 5 below, and stay tuned for more details of the Kobe retros.
