It’s Protro SZN!
After the release of 2018’s Nike Kobe 1 Protro, Nike and Kobe Bryant and have skipped ahead to re-issue the Nike Kobe 4 in Protro form.
Not many changes were made between the original Nike Zoom Kobe 4 and the Protro version. That could be considered a testament to how good the original actually was despite the shoe being 10 years old.
The only change I wish was added to what is now the final product is premium materials. While the synthetic leather on the heel and toe are much nicer and softer than the original version, actual leather could have been added to the shoe without compromising the overall look of the sneaker — keeping things in line with what a Protro actually is. However, the shoe has been solid on-court, not that I expected otherwise, so they have not been a disappointment thus far.
Hopefully you enjoy the detailed look and review of the Nike Kobe 4 Protro and be sure to let us know if you ended up grabbing a pair yourself or if you’re holding out to see what other colorways are headed our way.
