Just a year removed from the tragedy that took our beloved Kobe Bryant from us all too soon, his legacy continues to live on through his family, his game (on and off the court) and of course, his sneakers. The Los Angeles Lakers legend easily had one of the most influential and important impacts on the game when it comes to footwear and his Nike evolution continues with the release of the Zoom Kobe 6 Protro “All Star” shoe. In celebrating yet another larger-than-life shoe from the late-great phenom, GOAT has rounded up the Kobe 6 Sneaker Collection on their platform. The Zoom Kobe 6 “All-Star” iteration features a red and black color scheme that pays tribute to the West’s signature team colors, which Bryant donned for 15 times. Here are the rest of the iconic Kobe 6 shoes that are available now on GOAT.

Much like Nike’s LA All-Star Pack from 2011, the Zoom Kobe 6 All-Star iteration features a bold red synthetic material that serves as the foundation for this shoe’s upper, interspersed with the classic snakeskin textures that commemorates the West’s signature team colors. The shoe is equipped with the classic snakeskin texture throughout, paying tribute to Kobe’s nickname, “Black Mamba.” Mesh throats and leather heels find themselves coated in black while midfoot Swooshes in white present a nice airy contrast. The shoe’s dual-layer memory foam sock-liner creates a personalized fit, while the Flywire construction provides support and Kobe’s signature’s sit at the back of each pair, while a large Zoom Air unit is embedded in the forefoot.

The Kobe 6 “Prelude” is part of an eight-shoe capsule that featured Kobe’s history of signature shoes with Nike leading up to the launch of the Kobe 9 back in 2014. The main attraction on the silhouette of course is the graffiti design depicting everything from palm trees to sharks, the “Prelude” edition of the Kobe 6 draws inspiration from the eclectic Venice neighborhood of Bryant’s longtime home of Los Angeles. The colorful graphics bear a snakeskin textured upper, while a Zoom Air midsole and stabilizing heel counter provide added support.

Zoom Kobe 6 “Black Del Sol”

Release Date: December 26, 2010
Lowest Price: $612 USD

Nike debuted the Zoom Kobe 6 in December 2010 in this inaugural “Black Del Sol” colorway, featuring countless polyurethane ‘islands’ to create a unique black snake-textured synthetic upper, complemented by large del sol Swoosh logos on its side panels. Del sol also does the job on the tongue padding and Kobe’s signature on the heel, which is perfectly accented by the all-black coloring up top. Dark grey works the external heel counter and midsole, while white joins in on Kobe’s shield logo on the tongue and the outsole.
