Rumors suggest the next Nike Kobe silhouette to receive the retro treatment will be the Kobe V. Specifically, it is believed that the Joker-inspired “Chaos” colorway that Kobe debuted on Christmas Day in 2009 will be among those releasing again.
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.
It is also 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, though it remains to be seen exactly when that Kobe V Prothro will be available.
