Editor’s Notes: Over the past few years Kobe Bryant‘s signature sneakers have been retroed as part of a “Protro” line, which injects the sneakers with modern performance technology while keeping the OG design intact. While the future of Kobe-related Nike releases has been uncertain since the NBA legend’s tragic death in January, his popular Nike Kobe 6 “Grinch” is set to be re-released.
True Kobe fans recognize the poisonous colorway from when it was debuted by the Mamba himself on Christmas Day in 2010 in his highly-anticipated match-up against the “Big Three” Miami Heat. The re-release is expected to look exactly like the 2010 OG, but with modern tech upgrades to the classic Kobe 6.
Look for the Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Grinch” to release sometime in early 2021 at select retailers and Nike.com. The retail price is set at $180.
