Nike Pays Tribute to Gigi Bryant With the Kobe 6 Protro “Mamba Forever”

The most significant elements of this iteration are located towards the back. The #2 — Gigi‘s jersey number — is embellished onto the lateral sides with gilded finishes, and the heel’ molds split between “Kobe” on the left foot and “Gigi” on the right. Additionally, the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation logos are placed just above these monikers. Elsewhere on the kicks you’ll find the scales and tongues painted with black backgrounds while clean white accents follow suit on the Swooshes, laces and tongue’s Mamba logos. Interior liners continue the snake motif by appearing with white/black scale patterns. Placed underneath is a Zoom-loaded midsole that is housed in a black case and mated with a clean white outsole.

Early reports have these launching during Summer 2021 for $180 USD, but Nike has not announced any official release information yet.
