Finally! A first look at the Nike Zoom Kobe 4 Protro releasing during All-Star Weekend.
The basketball shoe that make it okay to wear low tops, the Nike Zoom Kobe 4 returns in Protro form during the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend.
Originally released in 2009, the Nike Zoom Kobe 4 proved that a light, low-cut profile could still give optimum support at the game’s highest level. It wasn’t the first low-cut Nike hoops shoe (the 1972 Bruin takes that distinction), but its impact on the game was tremendous, as it linked the low-top movement with a single player. In today’s diversely talented league, low-top shoes are now worn by every type of player, from shifty point guards to rangy forwards to powerful bigs. – Nike Inc.
The tech in the original shoe was ahead of its time. Featuring 1st Generation Flywire construction that used thin, strong nylon fibers to support the upper, which had debuted the year prior in the OG Nike Hyperdunk. There’s LunarLon foam in the forefoot, a Zoom Air unit in the heel and a full-length Phylon midsole, providing responsive cushioning.
Tech specs in the upcoming Nike Zoom Kobe 4 Protro brings in some updated performance features, including an adjusted vamp shape, a sleeker heel shape, wider outsole traction and a full-length Zoom Air unit!
The Nike Zoom Kobe 4 Protro releases February 15.
