”Philly” Kobe IV Protro coming back mid-April

Though one might not be able to recognize it based on the vociferous boos he received as he claimed the 2002 All-Star Game MVP, it was Philadelphia where Kobe and his family put down roots after they returned from Italy. It was there where Bryant completed his matriculation as an amateur athlete and worked himself into the player that Jerry West and the Lakers believed in enough to swing a draft day deal to acquire him. 

Just as was the case with its 2009 progenitor, it sports varsity royal leather at the toe. FlyWire panels on the on the sides are homes to red-bordered white Swooshes, along with a white Kobe logo on the tongue. Reflective detailing is seen on the toe, tongue and rear heel, with a star pattern visible on the later. Kobe’s number 24 is stamped on the rear heel, with his birthday, “8-23-78” printed on the insoles. 

Below the aforementioned upper lives a white midsole and a rubber outsole that features white and red solid rubber as well as blue translucent rubber. 

As it currently stands, the “Philly”Kobe IV Protro is set to be gift wrapped to the death profiteers April 13, 2024. They will carry a $190 USD sticker price.
