Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) makes its return this year after the cancellation of last year’s season due to COVID. It looks like the kids will be competing in a new “EYBL” colorway of the Nike Kobe 6 Protro.
Following up last year’s Forest Green “EYBL” Kobe 5 Protro, this Kobe 6 opts for a purple upper, with lighter shades in the center and darker hues on the edges. The heel clip and midsole comes dressed in black with speckles of grey throughout. The Swoosh comes in white, though it has a slight purple tint to it. Kobe’s logo undergoes its usual placement on the light purple tongue, while basketball-shaped EYBL logos are placed on the heels.
With Nike and Kobe Bryant’s contract yet to be renewed, a public release of the Nike Kobe 6 Protro “EYBL” is currently up in the air. Grab a first look below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for any updates.
