The Nike Kobe 4 Protro Gets Deconstructed

FastPass is back with another long awaited deconstruction. This time around they’ve taken apart the Nike Kobe 4 Protro.


While we have previously discussed the tech specs featured on the Nike Kobe 4 Protro, that won’t stop FastPass from taking a pair apart for everyone’s eyes to see.

What we can see with the deconstruction is how very close the Kobe 4 Protro is to the original version of the shoe. Materials are damn near identical, maybe even a little nicer (in my opinion) with the only thing missing being the infamous typo that was full-length Zoom Air.

For those that love to see the measurements between the heel and forefoot then you’ll likely be happy. Also, the heel Zoom Air unit is a massive 14mm thick.

We hope you enjoy the deconstruction from FastPass and let us know your thoughts on the Nike Kobe 4 Protro below in the comment section.

  1. In reality, I welcome just a retro just fine. There are trade offs for/against Phylon so I’m not phased by it. The misleading marketing wasn’t cool, but for what the shoe is, I have no problem.

    I just don’t like the price hike. 2008/9 wasn’t THAT long ago.

  2. They could carve out the foam a bit, put a full length zoom unit in there, and sow it back together. Viola, a real protro.
