Love the game. Be inspired. PLAY GIGI'S WAY by remembering, just like Gigi did, to never take an opportunity given to you for granted.
The Kobe 4 Protro “Mambacita” honors Gianna “Gigi” Bryant, and celebrates her competitive, joyful, and curious gameplay. Arriving on her 17th birthday, the design's colorway nods to her youth basketball team’s uniform. The gingham around the heel pays tribute to the flannel shirts that Gigi frequently wore around her waist. The Swoosh on the outsole is red, nodding to the red bow Gigi wore in her hair for school pictures. Personal touches, like Gigi’s name on the heel and shoelace tips, remind you to go beyond the game with audacious conviction, while the “Mambacita” heart and wings on the insole let you carry Gigi’s passion for sports into the future.
