Since their 2010 debut, Nike and Kobe Bryant’s Kobe 6 “Grinch” has stolen the show in the Mamba footwear catalog. Even though there have been a range of popular editions, the “Grinch” shoes have remained the most coveted out of the arsenal due to their striking scaled appearance and eye-catching hue without comprising athletic performance. Now the shoes are heading from the basketball court to the football field with a new cleat version.

Taking hold of the Vapor Edge cleats, the forthcoming release directly transfers the signature design of the Kobe 6 “Grinch” model. Fit with the scaled upper, curved heel decals, black Nike Swoosh, red Kobe loge and Nike Zoom sole. Of course, the cleats are also complete with the various “Grinch” green shades spanning deep green, lime green and electric green. The final fix is adding spikes for grip and traction onto the Zoom sole.

Given the popularity of the basketball version amongst professional players and everyday ballers, it won’t be shocking to see the new football version succeed on the field – ripping up real grass and turf alike.

Take a look at the new version in the gallery above. Priced at $230 USD, the Nike Vapor Edge Kobe 6 SE “Grinch” is slated for release during the Holiday 2024 season. Stay tuned for forthcoming details about the cleats’ release.
