Earlier today, Vanessa Bryant made a statement towards Nike about a unreleased Nike Kobe 6 Protro colorway she designed for Kobe and Gigi Bryant. She then showed a picture of someone holding the shoe.
Vanessa Bryant said in her statement, “the MAMBACITA shoes are NOT approved for sale. I wanted it to be sold to honor my daughter with ALL of the proceeds benefiting our @mambamambacitasports foundation but I did not re-sign the Nike contract and decided not to sell these shoes.”
The shoe was accidentally shipped to multiple customers by a shoe store in London, who for some reason had the shoe on hand. Kris Middleton of the Milwaukee Bucks even wore the shoe in this years playoffs.
