Ja Morant’s Nike Kobe 5 Protro Shoes

One of the many mamba sneakers that Ja Morant rocked during his rookie season is the Nike Kobe 5 Protro.

The original Kobe 5 released in 2009 with simple Zoom Air bags in the heel and forefoot. For the updated protro release, the forefoot unit gets upgraded to Zoom Turbo. The larger Zoom Turbo bag is articulated for added flexibility and more bounce. The Phylon foam in the original gets replaced with Cushlon, which is softer and better assists in energy return.

The preferred colorway for Ja was the “Chaos” version, which you can find HERE.

You can find the Nike Kobe 5 Protro at StockX, GOAT, and Flight Club.
