The Nike Mamba Rage Grinch Pays Tribute to Kobe Bryant
In 2010, Nike created a special makeup inspired by the beloved Christmas story How the Grinch Stole Christmas for their Kobe 6 sneakers. This colorway quickly sold out and remains one of the most sought-after special makeups to this day.
Eight years later, the same color scheme is making a comeback on the budget-friendly Nike Mamba Rage. This “Grinch” colorway features bright green Flyweave upper with red accents located on the tongue, toe box and mid panel. Fleece on the inner tongue and ankle collar adds to its hoop-friendly vibe while black Nike Swoosh logos adorn the sides while green rubber outsoles complete the design.
TRIBUTE TO KOBE
For over two and a half decades, Kobe Bryant’s legendary play lives on through his signature Nike shoes. The Mamba Rage pays homage to this remarkable career with signature Kobe details and provides superior support and comfort on the court.
FlyWeave is the lightweight material of choice, providing superior flexibility and breathability throughout the shoe’s entire length. A Lunarlon foam midsole adds soft cushioning while a sonographic representation of Kobe’s quote completes the package.
The Nike Mamba Rage ‘Grinch’ celebrates Kobe Bryant’s 20 years of dominating on the court with an eye-catching colorway that showcases its own impressive engineering feats. A bright green Flyweave upper is highlighted by red details in a snakeskin pattern, while subtle Kobe accents can be found on the heel. A thin rubber outsole featuring an exclusive traction pattern provides maximum grip while honoring Kobe’s 20 years on court.
