The Nike Zoom Kobe 4 "Del Sol" will officially make its return this month, but that won't be the only classic colorway of Kobe Bryant's fourth signature model making a comeback.

It appears the "Carpe Diem" will be returning for the first time since its release in 2009 after the pair was spotted on-feet of Brianna Green, the co-host of Nike Basketball's What It Takes podcast. The low-cut model sports a black leather upper featuring Flywire tech on the sides, contrasted by Lakers purple and gold hits on the Swoosh. The shoe's standout feature is the "Carpe Diem" logo on the tongue. This colorway was a staple in Bryant's lineup while pursuing his fourth championship during the 2009 NBA Playoffs.

As of now, Nike has yet to officially announce the release of the "Carpe Diem" Kobe 4 Protro. Stick with Sole Collector as more information develops in the coming weeks.
