With rumors floating around earlier this week that Nike is currently in the midst of planning Kobe 6 Protro releases for next year, perhaps the first thought to sprang to the mind of sneakerheads across the globe was if they would be bringing back the highly-revered “Grinch” colorway. Although the Swoosh has still yet to confirm this, or even any sort of delivery of Mamba-related products for that matter to return, @zsneakerheadz has just revealed that the iconic Christmas Day kicks from 2010 may actually indeed make a comeback in early 2021. Considering the fact that this is arguably the greatest variation of Kobe’s signature lineup, and even quite possibly the best Nike basketball shoe to ever release, a reissue would surely have fans rejoicing as pairs have hit upwards of $3K on the resell market following his unfortunate passing. Keep it locked as we receive more official information related to what would be a glorious return, and peep a detailed look at its original look from 10 years ago here in the meantime.
For other news, here’s a first look the upcoming Bruce Lee Kobe 5 Protro.
