For Kobe and Gigi’s Legacy
The Kobe 6 Protro 'Mambacita Sweet 16' honors the legacy that Kobe and Gianna 'Gigi' Bryant built. One that propelled all generations to continue their quest to be better, for themselves and for the game that unites us all. To the fans that have embodied the Mamba Mentality from the beginning and the young hoopers that have pushed Gigi's love for the game forward, this one’s for you.
Prioritizing Members who have put the Mamba Mentality to work on the court and fans who have followed Kobe and Gigi's journey from the beginning, the Kobe 6 Protro 'Mambacita Sweet 16' will only be released via Exclusive Access in the SNKRS app. Pairs will also be available for Members in the Los Angeles area via SNKRS Pass reservations. Profits from the sale of the Kobe 6 Protro 'Mambacita Sweet 16' will be donated to the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation.

Understanding Exclusive Access for the Kobe 6 Protro
Exclusive Access will provide some of our most dedicated Nike Members and Kobe fans the opportunity to purchase the Kobe 6 Protro. Who receives Exclusive Access will be determined by a combination of factors to ensure that pairs are going to Nike Members, old and new, with a genuine passion for the game of basketball and Kobe Bryant’s signature line.
Exclusive Access does not guarantee general availability or availability in your preferred size. For a greater opportunity to secure a pair in your size, it is recommended that you have Push Notifications enabled so you know if you are given Exclusive Access. Exclusive Access will be awarded to select members on May 1 in honor of Gigi’s birthday.
Understanding SNKRS Pass for the Kobe 6 Protro
SNKRS Pass will provide Members in the greater Los Angeles area with a chance to reserve and pick up a pair of the Kobe 6 Protro at select retail locations. Utilizing the 'Draw-like' style that is common for many SNKRS launches, Members will have an extended window of time to request a SNKRS Pass reservation. Once the window closes, winners will be chosen at random, and you will then be notified of your results. The window to request a reservation will be open at a random time on April 29, with winning Members having the ability to pick up their pair on May 1.
