Nike recently brought back the Kobe 4 Protro to honour what would have been Gigi Bryant’s 17th birthday. This “Mambacita” colourway is dressed in a simple white and black make up, with subtle hits of gold and red to honour the late Laker Legend’s late daughter. Check out my detailed review and see how they look on feet before deciding on your opinion!

Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Playoff Pack” Review
The next Nike Kobe shoe set to release is the Kobe 6 Protro “Playoff Pack”. Originally releasing in April 2011, a decade later Nike Basketball is bringing them back in Protro form. Featuring a colour base of white, black and yellow, these were a must for me given its wearability and overall clean look. These release in North America on June 3rd, so let me know if you are going to be trying for them!
Nike Kobe 5 Protro “Big Stage / Parade” Review
The first Kobe sneaker to release following his untimely passing, the Kobe 5 Protro “Big Stage / Parade” kicked off Mamba Week with a limited drop this past week. Done in a split fashion, one side is inspired by the Big Stage colourway from 2010, and the other taking tattoo-like graphics from the Parade PE colourway. Check out my detailed review for a closer look and to hear my thoughts on this pair!
Nike Kobe 4 Protro “Draft Day” Review
Arguably the greatest Kobe model of all time, the Kobe 4 is back in “Protro” form, with the “Draft Day” colourway honouring Kobe being drafted by the Hornets in the 1996 NBA Draft! Sticking true to the original, this model has always been one of my faves and I’m super stoked to review the first, of hopefully, many Kobe 4 Protros to drop in the future!
