The highly anticipated Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Dodgers” is set to hit shelves in Summer 2025. This shoe was first unveiled as a Player Exclusive by Vanessa Bryant. The pair pays homage to Kobe Bryant’s love for the Los Angeles Dodgers and his hometown.

The Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Dodgers” features a vibrant Game Royal upper. This is complemented by crisp white detailing and striking University Red accents. These elements evoke the classic Dodgers aesthetic, making the shoe a must-have for fans of both Kobe Bryant and the storied baseball franchise.

Initially showcased by Vanessa Bryant as a Player Exclusive (PE), the shoe included special touches like Kobe’s number “8” on the lateral ankles and baseball stitching along the tongues. It remains uncertain whether these unique details will carry over to the retail version. Regardless, the sneaker promises to deliver a visually striking and performance-ready design that honors Kobe’s legacy and his connection to Los Angeles.
