The "Black Mamba" Kobe 6 Is Inspired by the Philippines

The "Black Mamba" Kobe 6 Is Inspired by the Philippines

Each of the sneakers in the epic Nike Kobe "Fade to Black" pack is tied to a different location, with their boxes referencing different cities across the globe. The Nike Kobe 6 from the group looks to the Philippines, referencing a trip Kobe Bryant took to Manila in 2011. The story mentions the nation's rabid love for basketball and a pick-up game Bryant played in while there on a visit. The images below are from a setup dedicated to the pack at Nike New York that breaks down the inspiration behind each shoe. Watch for this Kobe 6 retro to launch on April 5. Nike Kobe 6 "FTB" Release Date: 04/05/16 Color: River Rock/River Rock Style #: 869457-007 Price: $200
