Vanessa Bryant sent out early Christmas gifts to her nearest and dearest friends. The widow of NBA legend Kobe Bryant distributed pairs of the unreleased Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Grinch” sneakers to pals like Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, radio host Patty Rodriguez and others, according to People.
Kim Kardashian unboxed her pair on her Instagram stories and shared her excitement via a series of fire emojis. Her mother Kris Jenner, who was gifted her own pair, was more vocal about her excitement. “OMG Thank you [Vanessa] I’m screaming!!!” Jenner wrote on her Instagram story. “Love my Kobe’s!!!”
The bright green kicks will be available to the public on December 25, Christmas Day, with a suggested retail price of $180, but soaring demand could send the price soaring to a whopping $1,700 or more on the resale market. Head to Nice Kicks to keep track of where you can purchase the sneakers when they release this week.
