Nike is bringing back the Nike Kobe 4 in 2023 with a “Black Metallic Gold” rendition hitting shelves this Holiday season.
Fans of Kobe Bryant sneakers were relieved when in 2022 Vanessa Bryant and Nike finally reached an agreement to continue the iconic line of performance basketball silhouettes. So far, we’ve gotten confirmation that outside of the Nike Kobe 6, The Swoosh will bring back the Kobe 4 and 8 in Protro form and now we have another colorway of the Kobe 4 confirmed for Holiday 2023 - the Nike Kobe 4 Protro “Black Metallic Gold.”
While we don’t have the exact color placement of the model, expect the sneaker to feature a mainly black upper with either nubuck or leather overlays mixed with Flywire on the underlay. Gold accents should appear on the branding details like the Swoosh along the midfoot and the Kobe logo on the insole. As it's a Protro release, expect to see updated tooling internally with the exterior remaining the same as an OG pair of Kobe 4s. Underfoot, a two-tone midsole pairs with an all-black rubber outsole and completes the look.
The Nike Kobe 4 Protro Black Metallic Gold is set to release Holiday 2023 through Nike and select retailers online and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $180.
