The Nike x Kobe series has become one of the most heralded signature lines in all of performance basketball. In particular, the Kobe 6 has become Nike’s forefront silhouette, releasing in a multitude of colorways. Very recently, a new Kobe 6 Protro “Reverse Grinch” was seen on Anthony Davis’ Instagram Live. Now in one of its most historic offerings, this upcoming “Mamba Forever” Kobe 6 Protro honors the lives of Kobe and his daughter Gigi.
The Kobe 6 Protro has become an icon for the life-long Laker, detailing many of his own inspirations. This one, instead inspired by the Black Mamba and the Mambacita herself, features a black and white textured upper. Gold lettering displaying the words Kobe and Gigi are inscribed on the heel, which sit below the Black Mamba branding. The number “2” displayed on the lateral heel pays homage to the Mambacita’s basketball legacy.
It is expected that the Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Mamba Forever” will release this summer on Nike.com. Take a look at the leaked photos below. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks as more information releases about the pair’s historic offering.
