The Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Reverse Grinch” has been in the works for a long time. First spotted on the court via Anthony Davis of the Los Angeles Lakers back in 2021, the basketball shoe is now reportedly dropping in the Holiday 2023 season.

Per SneakerFiles and @zsneakerheadz, the upcoming shoe is slated to arrive just in time for Christmas this year. As its name suggests, the “Reverse Grinch” takes inspiration from one of Kobe’s most popular shoes, the “Grinch”, and alternates the colors across the entire shoe. Bright Crimson takes on most of the upper and sole unit, while Electric Green works its way on the laces and tongue branding.

While no official imagery of the Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Reverse Grinch” is out yet, take an early look at the pair via the top slider above. Stay tuned for more information.
