Undefeated’s 2018 Kobe 1 Protros were some of the most coveted releases of last year. You wouldn’t say slept on — hell, the F&F ‘Purple’ and ‘Flight Jackets’ were demanding four figures on the resell market — but they didn’t get the widespread hype they deserved.
No surprises then that the West Coast titans are dipping back into Black Mamba’s Nike archive this year.
Reports from soleheatonfeet name the Kobe 4, which first hit the hardwood in 2008, as the next in line for the Protro treatment. The silhouette, a 2019 reimagining of Kobe’s first low-top, will arrive in Team Orange, Sail and Black colourways sometime in April, but that’s about all we know.
We’ll keep our eyes peeled and let you know of any updates.
