Nike Kobe 6 Protro Grinch

to $950.00 USD

In late 2020, Nike introduced a new rendition of the Kobe 6 design, unveiling the Nike Kobe 6 Protro Grinch. Originating from the Kobe 6 Grinch's debut in 2011 during an iconic Christmas Day clash between Kobe Bryant's Los Angeles Lakers and LeBron James' Miami Heat, this iteration represents the first Kobe 6 model to undergo the Kobe Protro treatment. This unique design approach revitalizes classic Kobe styles by integrating contemporary technology for enhanced performance.

At first glance, the Nike Kobe 6 Grinch closely resembles the original 2011 version: featuring a textured, snake-inspired upper in Green Apple and Volt hues paying tribute to Kobe's Black Mamba moniker. Accentuated by a black Swoosh, red Kobe branding on the tongue, and a green translucent outsole, the shoe captures the essence of a reptilian theme. However, as a Protro edition, notable enhancements are evident. The updated Kobe 6 Grinch incorporates a more responsive Zoom Air cushioning system and refined traction for an improved court feel. Additionally, modifications to the silhouette's shape deliver a lower, more streamlined fit.
