Nike Kobe 6 “Grinch” Football Cleat Rumored To Release

Marco Negrete

The Mamba Mentality introduced by the late Kobe Bryant has transcended the game of basketball and inspired generations. The adoption of his mindset is clear in the demand for his sneakers that consistently sell out on release day. People want to channel their inner Mamba so much that football players have worn custom Kobe cleats for years. Now, it looks like Nike has taken notice and will give athletes beyond basketball a chance to rep Kobe sneakers while playing. According to House of Heat, the famous Kobe 6 Grinch colorway will come to life on the Nike Vapor Edge football cleat this holiday season. The original Nike Kobe 6 “Grinch” debuted and was released on Christmas Day, 2010. A Protro of the sneaker dropped in 2020, and the follow-up “Reverse Grinch” colorway was released in 2023. Official images have not surfaced, but enjoy a mock-up via HOH.


Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
