Nike Kobe 6 “Grinch”
Originally releasing in late 2010, the Nike Kobe 6 “Grinch” first hit the NBA court during a Christmas day match-up between the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat. This bright-green pair was originally inspired by the Green Mamba snake, but the anti-hero persona of the Grinch was a perfect fit for the menacing Kobe Bryant, who was looking for his third straight NBA title.
“What The” Nike Kobe 8
The popular “What The” concept, first championed by the SB Dunk, was a big player for Nike Basketball in recent years. It hit the popular Kobe 8 and the concept was a perfect fit for the Engineered Mesh upper of the shoe, which was conducive to all the patterns and colors that were included. Is it the best Nike Kobe ever?
