After both tragedy and what seemed like an extremely long wait, the Nike Kobe 6 Protro is finally releasing to the public. The Kobe 6 Protro “Grinch” or “Green Apple” will be the first colorway releasing on December 24, 2020 with more colorways to follow in 2021.
The shoe will be hard to get as its production quantities were determined before Kobe Bryant’s unfortunate passing. But fear not, we’ll get more colorways in 2021. Hopefully, Nike was able to change plans and produce them in huge quantities. Because based on the WearTesters Discord community, there’s a ton of people ready to buy them.
Click play above for Chris’ complete breakdown of the Kobe 6 Protro, its tech specs, and what changed from the original Kobe 6.
