Anthony Davis took to Instagram for his return to the court with an IG live video that previewed a “Reverse Grinch” Nike Kobe 6 Protro. 

With the Nike x Kobe relationship coming to an end, much of the rollout of Nike x Kobe products is a big question mark. Vanessa Bryant announced there was only a couple of new colorways to release until the relationship was finally over and we already know the Undefeated x Kobe “Hall of Fame” pair will be releasing, it’s possible the “Reverse Grinch” pair may be the last pair to release. It also could very well be a Player exclusive due to AD being a popular Nike athlete, much is still unknown as of now but what we do know is that the colorway is one for the ages. Featuring a direct reverse colorway to the OG “Grinch” rendition, a red upper is paired with black Nike branding, bright green laces, and matching green Kobe logos on the tongue.


It’ll be interesting to see if the anticipated pair does release to the public but as of now, we have no news to offer regarding if these will see the light of day, although we hope they do. Enjoy a mock-up based on the first look images AD provided on Instagram below and make sure to keep it locked to JustFreshKicks for updates on this potential release as we get them.
