Nike Kobe 6 Protro History GQ

Nike and the “Mamba” go way back and have achieved incredible things together. Even after certain controversies, the Swoosh stuck by him and it managed to pay off as the “Protro” line continued to be a best-seller over the years.

Signed by Nike in 2003, this 4-year deal was worth $40 million for Bryant and along with the popularity, he also got his very own signature sneaker.

Various models entered the market, including the Kobe 5 Protro that continues to be one of Nike’s most popular sneakers. Just last year we saw various hyped releases such as the Kobe 5 Rings and Kobe 5 Retro Bruce Lee that are reselling for very decent profits.

The Nike Kobe 6 debuted in 2010 in the famed “Grinch” colorway. Ever since then, Nike has released various new colorways that are sitting golden on the reseller’s markets.

To estimate resale for the latest “POP” colorway, let’s head on over to StockX.

Nike Kobe 6 Challenge Red All-Star

Nike Kobe 6 All Star Resale

Retail Price: $180

Estimated Resell: $620

Release Date: 03/16/2021

Colorway: Challenge Red/Black-White

Also debuted back in 2011, the Nike Kobe 6 Protro Challenge Red released for the 2021 All-Star games with a slightly updated design.

The upper features a “Challenge Red” reptilian textured leather with red/black laces and white lateral Swooshes. Semi-translucent black heel pieces and black midsoles with a glossy finish give off a high-end feel. Lastly, semi-translucent outsoles complete the look.

The average selling price on StockX is almost $290 which is a gross profit of over $100. The Nike Kobe 6 Protro POP will likely have a slightly lower resale value.

Nike Kobe 6 Protro POP | A Closer Look


Retail Price: $180

Estimated Resell: $250

Release Date: June 11th/2021

Colorway: White/Neutral Grey-Del Sol-Black

Seen various times on the feet of Kobe Bryant during the 2011 postseason, the Nike Kobe 6 White Del Sol returns along with the release of a Black Del Sol that as of now, has an undisclosed release date.

These sneakers feature a white, grey and, black color scheme with vibrant yellow hits on the sock liners and on the tongue’s borders.

The upper predominantly features white textured leather contrasted by black lateral Swooshes. White throats enveloped in matching laces lead up to a pair of white tongues with black Kobe Protro branding.

Kobe’s signatures appear on the molds of the heels while “Del Sol” is engraved on the interior lining. Glossy black midsoles and outsoles with grey, black, and yellow hits complete the design.


How To Buy For Retail

Although they dropped in Asian markets on April 14th, a worldwide release date of June 11th has been confirmed likely via select retailers and The retail price for men’s sizes is set at $180.

Estimated Resell Value

Kobe sneakers are on the rise and I believe that these will sell out very quickly.

Using my estimated resell value, expect gross profits of $70 and over $100 for sizes above 9. That’s a “Profit” according to our Hype Meter.
