Nike recently brought back the Kobe 4 Protro to honour what would have been Gigi Bryant’s 17th birthday. This “Mambacita” colourway is dressed in a simple white and black make up, with subtle hits of gold and red to honour the late Laker Legend’s late daughter. Check out my detailed review and see how they look on feet before deciding on your opinion!
Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Mambacita Sweet 16” Review
Following a new agreement reached between Kobe Bryant’s estate with Nike, they recently released the first Kobe sneaker earlier this month after a nearly year-long hiatus. The “Mambacita Sweet 16” colourway dropped on Gigi’s birthday where she would have turned sixteen years old, and as such, this pair is a nod to her including her jersey #2 visible on the heel.
Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Playoff Pack” Review
The next Nike Kobe shoe set to release is the Kobe 6 Protro “Playoff Pack”. Originally releasing in April 2011, a decade later Nike Basketball is bringing them back in Protro form. Featuring a colour base of white, black and yellow, these were a must for me given its wearability and overall clean look. These release in North America on June 3rd, so let me know if you are going to be trying for them!
Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Grinch” Review
One of the greatest Kobe Bryant shoes of all time made its return this past Christmas Eve, in time for its 10th year anniversary. The “Grinch” Kobe 6 Protro dropped in limited numbers resulting in sell outs and “out of stocks” everywhere, showing how highly sought after this classic colourway is! Check out my review for a detailed look and breakdown and let me know if you guys managed to take home a pair or not!
Nike Kobe 5 Protro “Big Stage / Parade” Review
The first Kobe sneaker to release following his untimely passing, the Kobe 5 Protro “Big Stage / Parade” kicked off Mamba Week with a limited drop this past week. Done in a split fashion, one side is inspired by the Big Stage colourway from 2010, and the other taking tattoo-like graphics from the Parade PE colourway. Check out my detailed review for a closer look and to hear my thoughts on this pair!

Nike Kobe 4 Protro “Draft Day” Review
Arguably the greatest Kobe model of all time, the Kobe 4 is back in “Protro” form, with the “Draft Day” colourway honouring Kobe being drafted by the Hornets in the 1996 NBA Draft! Sticking true to the original, this model has always been one of my faves and I’m super stoked to review the first, of hopefully, many Kobe 4 Protros to drop in the future!
