The Nike Kobe 6 Protro ‘Mambacita – Sweet 16’ is a special edition of Kobe Bryant’s popular former signature basketball shoe in a colorway that honors both his and his daughter Gigi’s life and legacy. The design features black snake scales on the upper that are inspired by Bryant’s ‘Black Mamba’ nickname. White accenting on the side Swooshes, laces, and on the heel counter break up the look. Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation insignia are found on the heel, with ‘Kobe’ and ‘Gigi’ inscribed on the left and right sides, respectively. Gigi’s ‘2’ AAU jersey number appears on the lateral side of the heel. Net proceeds of the Nike Kobe 6 Protro ‘Mambacita Sweet 16’ will be donated to an organization benefiting under-resourced communities.
Sports Foundation crest appears in place of the traditional Kobe signature heel mold, with “Kobe” and “Gigi” printed on the left and right shoe, respectively.
