Vanessa Bryant Calls Out Nike Over Unauthorized “MAMBACITA” Kobe 6

Previously, Vanessa Bryant revealed that she wouldn’t be renewing her late husband Kobe Bryant’s contract with Nike. Vanessa Bryant had kind words for the ending of the contract between her husband and Nike. However, Bryant recently took to Instagram to address an issue with Nike, after unauthorized pairs of the Nike Kobe 6, Protro “MAMBACITA” landed in the hands of a person who isn’t affiliated with her family.

Vanessa Bryant said, “This is a shoe I worked on in honor of my daughter Gianna. It was going to be called the MAMBACITA shoe as an exclusive black and white colorway on her daddy’s shoes. I picked the colors in honor of her uniform, the number 2 she wore just like her uniform, the inside pattern, Kobe and Gigi on the back in gold instead of Kobe’s signature, the inside shoe details (butterfly, wings, halo), etc.”

Vanessa Bryant continued saying, “The MAMBACITA shoes are NOT approved for sale. I wanted it to be sold to honor my daughter with ALL of the proceeds benefitting our @mbamabacitasports foundation, but I did not re-sign the Nike contract and decided not to sell these shoes. (The MAMBACITA shoes were not approved to be made in the first place).” Bryant then pointed out that Nike didn’t send any pairs of sneakers to her or her daughters and questioned how they got into the hands of someone else. Take a look at Vanessa Bryant’s statement above, along with the “MAMBACITA” Kobe 6.
