If it’s not the best Christmas release, it’s certainly the most popular Nike Kobe release of all-time.

The Nike Zoom Kobe 6 “Grinch” was released on Christmas Day in 2010, which was when Kobe Bryant went up against the “Big 3” Miami Heat.

While it’s known as “The Grinch” colorway that resembles the infamous Dr. Seuss character who tried to ruin the holiday. Nike officially dubbed these the “Green Mamba” inspired by the animal of the same name.

Featuring a bright two-toned Green scaled upper with Black Nike Swoosh logos on the side, and Crimson contrasting accents on the tongue and back heel.
