Most basketball fans and sneakerheads already know that Kobe Bryant finished high school in Philadelphia. His Lower Merion HS benefits from dope PEs that leave most other high schools jealous. This latest release isn’t for them, but it still reps the City of Brotherly Love. The Nike Zoom Kobe IV ‘Philly’ comes to us in a dope red, white and blue construction. Most of the upper is blue, and the ankle collar has tonal blue stars made of reflective 3M material. A glimpse inside reveals Kobe’s (8/23/78) birthday printed on the insoles. No word yet on a wide release, but you can grab a limited size run today from Maruqee Sole.
