Original Story (05/06/20): Nike is expected to give several Kobe 6s the Protro treatment in 2021. Along with reports of the legendary Kobe 6 “Grinch” colorway making a return next year, we also have reports of three other Kobe 6s expected to drop around the same timeframe. As these are Protros, they are expected to look exactly the same as the versions that released 10 years ago, only with modern tech upgrades.

Update (05/21/20): The “White Del Sol” is the latest Nike Kobe 6 to be revealed to return as part of 2021’s Protro lineup. See the 2011 version below.

Nike Kobe VI Protro “Think Pink”

The Kobe VI “Think Pink” released in 2011 and was named in support of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. The fund is dedicated to fighting all forms of cancer affecting women, not only breast cancer. No images of the 2021 release have surfaced yet but the release is expected to be the same as the 2011 version. The pink uppers are hit with a white swoosh, heel and midsole as well as a black overlay on the heel.

Nike Kobe VI Protro “All-Star”

Like all years of the All Star game selected star Nike players get an All-Star version of their signature line. In 2011 the Kobe VI was done up in red and black to go with the red jerseys the the West team would be wearing. A gradient red and black upper has the signature 3D snake skin. The midsole, heel and heel layover are all black. The Swoosh and the outsole are both white. Just like the “Think Pink” no photos have surfaced yet but the “All-Star” is expected to look the same as its 2011 release.
