Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Nike Kobe 4 Protro Shoes

While Giannis Antetokounmpo didn’t rock the Nike Kobe 4 Protro often during his transcendent 2018-19 season, he did put on a show during the 2019 All-Star game in the shoes. Short of winning the All-Star MVP award, Giannis made a big impact with a game-high 38 points and a massive dunk that you can find in the moment listed below.

The Nike Kobe 4 originally released for the Black Mamba’s 2008-09 season and was revolutionary for it’s low-cut design. This was a direct request from Kobe Bryant, who saw how soccer players played faster with a lower-cut boot. This playing style seems to match Giannis more so than Kobe, with the Greek Freak’s constant rim running looking like a blur on the court. The Kobe 4 worn by Giannis was a “protro” version, which slimmed the heel shape and increased the range of the traction.

You can find the Nike Zoom Kobe 4 at StockX, GOAT, Stadium Goods, and Flight Club.
