Nike honors the legacy of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi with the Kobe 6 Protro 'Mambacita Sweet Sixteen'. Black snake scales across the upper reference the Laker legend's Black Mamba alter ego, while the Swoosh, tongue logo and leather back panels are executed in white. A Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation crest appears in place of the traditional Kobe signature heel mold, with "Kobe" and "Gigi" printed on the left and right shoe, respectively. A gold "2" on the lateral window represents Gigi's AAU uniform number. The insole design pays further tribute to Gigi with an illustration that features a halo, angel wings, the nickname "Mambacita" and another "2."
