Nike Kobe 9 Elite High Protro “What The” Releasing Summer 2024

Nike continues to celebrate Kobe Bryant’s legacy by reintroducing classic models from his signature line. Among the most anticipated releases is this Kobe 9 Elite High Protro “What The,” set to drop in Summer 2025. This sneaker, known for its bold design and advanced performance features, remains a favorite among sneakerheads and athletes alike.

The original Kobe 9 Elite High “What The” debuted in 2015. It captured attention with its eclectic design, featuring a vibrant mix of colors. The 2025 Protro version retains this mismatched look, boasting a Flyknit upper integrated with Flywire technology. This combination ensures enhanced support and stability, crucial for on-court performance.

The sneaker’s design is visually striking. The lateral side showcases reddish hues, while blues and greens dominate the medial side. The multicolor pattern on the sock liner and Kobe’s crest atop the tongue add to its chaotic yet cohesive aesthetic. This design not only makes a statement but also pays homage to Kobe’s dynamic playing style.

Performance upgrades are a significant highlight of the Protro version. Nike has replaced the original Lunarlon cushioning with a drop-in React foam. This upgrade improves comfort and responsiveness. Additionally, a full-length Zoom Air unit provides superior impact protection and energy return. These features make the sneaker a top choice for both collectors and athletes.
