An Official Look at the Nike Kobe 4 Protro ‘Del Sol’

Looking better with every preview, the Nike Kobe 4 Protro ‘Del Sol’ is the next colorway to release.

Scheduled to release on May 24 for $175, the Nike Kobe 4 Protro ‘Del Sol’ looks just as good as they day they originally released.

Sporting a white synthetic leather toe, first generation Flywire and an embroidered ankle collar — the Kobe 4 ‘Del Sol’ looks nearly identical to the OG. Tech specs are not the same, unfortunately, but they’re not far off. With heel Zoom Air and a soft Phylon midsole — missing is the forefoot Lunar Foam.

For those that continue to inquire, the Kobe 4 Protro will not feature Full-Length Zoom Air. That was a typo included within the shoe’s original press release. The Protro was never intended to feature Full-Length cushion and none of the upcoming releases will offer it.

Let us know if you plan on grabbing a pair of the Nike Kobe 4 Protro ‘Del Sol’ and stay tuned for updates on future colorways.

  1. Really want the Carpe Diem’s but the lack of a concrete release date is killing me, and I’ll cop these. Unless of course, a date for the Carpe Diem’s drops in the next 15 days.

  2. Bought the “draft day” one on release, had these actually been full length zoom, I probably would’ve gotten a couple colorways, but considering there are no performance upgrades in this ‘protro’, I’ll pass

  3. Nightwing, I seen Jacque Slade review these and he said the forefoot was cushlon foam which is considered an update. Is cushlon better then lunar in your opinion or will it at least last longer?

      1. Oh wow didn’t know that. Still love the 4’s regardless and consider them a great performance shoe even at the crazy price point still disappointing to a degree though.

  4. I plan to cop a pair. I have the Draft Days and am really impressed with them as a performance shoe. I had an OG pair of both and always preferred the POP Del Sols to the Draft Days in terms of a colorway.
