It looks like Nike is getting ready to welcome back a popular silhouette for next year. Already prepping ahead for upcoming seasons, Instagram account @zsneakerheadz reports that the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Protro “Masterpiece” is slated to join next spring’s lineup.

Originally launched in 2014, the shoe was a collaboration between NBA legend Kobe Bryant and Nike’s Eric Avar. The “Masterpiece” colorway sees the shoe arrive in a vibrant multicolor Flyknit upper, contrasting the black base of the shoe. Metallic silver accents are seen throughout the sneaker while it sits atop a LunarIon insert for added cushioning on top of the thin web outsole. The Mamba logo is seen on the quilted leather tongues while the symbolic red stitching is seen on the heel to pay homage to Bryant’s return following his career-threatening Achilles injury. The Swoosh is highlighted in white to match the rubber outsole to round out the design.

Look out for the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Protro “Masterpiece” arriving in Spring 2025 at select retailers and online at Nike for $240 USD.
