As part of the Art of a Champion Collection we’ll take a closer look at the Nike Kobe 1 Protro Final Seconds.
The Nike Kobe 1 Protro is the first sneaker releasing from the new collection. All the shoes in the collection are inspired by moments that cement members of NIKE, Inc.’s extended family among basketball royalty. While not every moment led directly to a title, each is intrinsic to the respective athlete’s journey toward glory.
Kobe Bryant’s Mamba Mentality is a clutch, killer instinct best defined by his absolute gutting of Phoenix in Game 4 of the Playoffs. Taking complete ownership of what was now officially his Lakers team — with Kobe 1s on his feet — he simply refused to be beaten. Down two points, Kobe’s wrong-footed, herky-jerky layup on a fast break sent the game to OT, where, down one, he saved the ball off a tip, drove right and drilled the game-winner with two defenders in his face as the buzzer sounded.
