Nike could be expanding its Kobe Protro line with the Kobe 5. According to @kb824 on Instagram, the popular "Chaos" colorway of Kobe Bryant's fifth Nike signature sneaker is arriving this December. 

The original "Chaos" Kobe 5 dropped in 2010 to much fanfare, thanks to its colorway inspired by Batman's arch nemesis, the Joker. Pairs have held their value over time too with listings currently at $600 on Flight Club. The inspiration was also used earlier this year on the "Mamba Mentality" Kyrie 5 to celebrate Mamba Day 2019, but this would be the first time the colorway gets a true retro release. 

Like past Protro releases, expect the exterior to look identical to its predecessor, but feature modern performance upgrades. Stay tuned as more information becomes available regarding this potential holiday release. The pair is currently rumored to drop on Dec. 26.

NOTE: The pair pictured above is the original "Chaos" Kobe 5.
