DeRozan been comin’ through with the Kobe 4 Protro heat

DeMar DeRozan snapped necks last night against the Nuggets in an unseen Undefeated x Kobe 4 Protro. Allegedly these KB4s are one of several upcoming drops much like the Undefeated x Kobe 1 Protro from 2018. Earlier this year rumors circulated about a new Undefeated x Kobe pack, but those reports centered around a late April ’19 release date. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that we’re too late into April now for a release before May, so Summer ’19 appears to be a much more realistic time for these bad boys to hit the streets.

DeMar’s joints from last night ditched last year’s camo print for a retro Spurs look of teal and yellow. We’re curious to see if every Undefeated x Kobe 4 Protro will be camo-less or if this colorways is a one-off. The shoe’s upper features mostly patent leather construction alongside a synthetic quarter panel so the Flywire can be seen. Black and white accents round out the Protro 4’s overall look.

The use of teal really throws a wrench in many of our theories on the Undefeated x Kobe 4 Protro. A small portion of the Undefeated x Kobe 1 Protros came in patent leather and synthetic leather, but for the most part they followed a team based (Suns, Lakers, Bucks, etc) camouflage theme. Will the others be modular and follow more of a set color scheme? Will each pair be individualized? Our biggest question though is whether or not following shoes will play into retro hoops motifs. What do you think?

We’d be doing Kobe-Heads a disservice if we omitted to mention the other pair of stellar Kobe 4 Protros on the court last night. Denver’s Isiah Thomas, a long-time Kobe wearer) laced up some dummy Nuggets themed Kobes dressed in navy blue. These ma’shuckas are stupid clean – we’d happily take a releaseĀ right now. There’s kind of a a Batman theme behind these navy bangers.
