Nike Basketball and Undefeated have come together to celebrate Kobe Bryant's birthday with the Nike Kobe 4 Protro Undefeated “Lakers”, now available on StockX. Nike and the LA-based streetwear and sneaker one-stop shop Undefeated have been long time collaborators, so it only made sense for one LA legend to honor another with a special edition Kobe 4 for this years Mamba Day. These shoes are a part of a pack of four Kobe 4 Protros that represent members of Team Kobe. This purple and gold colorway not only salutes Kobe’s monumental career as a Laker, but also nods to Laker rising star and Team Kobe player Kyle Kuzma.
As part of the Protro Series, this Kobe 4 is delivered with improved tech, a modernized upper, and revamped materials. This shoe features a purple iridescent patent leather upper with its signature Flywire technology on the sides contrasted with gold accents. Signature Kobe logo and the Undefeated 5 strike logo appear on each of the tongues. A Zoom Air cushioned midsole and iridescent Undefeated logo with the numbers “8” and “24” heel details honoring Kobe Bryant’s legacy complete the design. These sneakers released in August of 2019 for $180.
