Nike Celebrates Gigi’s Birthday With a Kobe 4 Protro

Devin Robertson

It has been three years since the unfortunate passing of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi. Though they may have left us too soon, Nike and Vanessa Bryant keep their legacy alive with the Nike Kobe line. With Gigi’s birthday on the way, Nike is celebrating the hooper with another colorway dedicated to the Mambacita. 

The upcoming Nike Kobe 4 Protro “Gigi” inverts last year’s Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Mambacita,” which featured a black base with white accents.  This iteration features a stark white coloration throughout, with black accents detailing the look. Black-and-white plaid wraps around the glossy white heel counter with Gigi embroidered above it. Gigi’s #2 and Kobe’s logo appear gilded on the heel and tongue respectively. The Nike Kobe 4 “Gigi” is expected to release on Gigi’s birthday May 1, via Nike and select retailers. The retail price is set at $180.

UPDATE (4/19/2023): Official images of the Kobe 4 Protro “Gigi” have been revealed.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
