Release Date: The Nike Kobe 6 Protro ‘Grinch’Release: 24 December 2020
After months of speculation, we now have official pics and a release date for the retro of the beloved Nike Kobe 6 Protro ‘Grinch’ – and it’ll be here before you know it! Rumours of this long-awaited return began circulating back in May this year, which kind of made sense because this year marks 10 years since Kobe Bryant laced these iconic ballers for a Christmas Day clash against LeBron James and the Miami Heat.
Taking aesthetic inspiration from Dr. Seuss’ notorious Christmas trouble-maker, the Kobe 6 ‘Grinch’ also pays homage to one of the most venomous snakes in East Africa: the green mamba. Original pairs of the iconic release continue to generate steep prices online, the ‘Grinch’ perpetually terrorising the resale market, just like its furry namesake does to the inhabitants of the village of Whoville.
Word throughout the year consistently hinted at a 2021 release for the retro of the Nike Kobe 6 Protro ‘Grinch’, but pairs are now expected to land at Nike and selected Swoosh stockists on December 24 – which is kind of perfect when you think about it.
