The Protro treatment of Bryant’s sixth signature sneaker with the Swoosh has everyone excited. And rightfully so. The Nike Zoom Kobe 6 Protro “Grinch” is on the top out of the list for the upcoming Protro series.
Within the past couple of weeks, we’ve learned that some of the most recognized colorways of the Kobe 6 are getting a Protro look. The Nike Zoom Kobe 6 Protro ‘White Del Sol’ brings back the original ‘POP’ colorway from 2011, updated with refreshed tooling and a sleeker shape. The all-white upper features the iconic scaly upper that derived from the Mamba’s nickname. Polyurethane ‘islands’ create a scaly texture on the white and grey upper, fortified with a black molded heel counter and accented with a matching black Swoosh. The Cushlon midsole packs a large and flexible Air Zoom Turbo unit in the forefoot, along with a softer foam compound in the heel. Underfoot, the rubber outsole features a snakeskin-inspired traction pattern for maximum grip. Black and Del Sol accents come together for a clean look.
It looks like the Kobe 6 Protro “POP” is releasing in newjordan2020 on April 14th, with a global release still TBD.
