We’ve already learned that the Nike Kobe 6 Protro is expected to be part of this year’s holiday releases and now, it appears that another Nike Kobe sneaker is reportedly joining the lineup. 

Per Sole Retriever, a new black and metallic gold makeup of the late basketball legend Kobe Bryant’s fourth signature shoe will hit retail this holiday season. There are no leaked imagery of the purported style available at the time of writing, but a mockup photo suggests that it will don an all-black color scheme, with gold hits on the tongue and Swoosh branding. This Protro version is expected to feature an updated tooling for enhanced performance.

At the time of writing, release details for the “Black/Metallic Gold” Kobe 4 Protro have yet to be announced by Nike. Check back soon for updates.
