Now, I’m not typically one for the whole midnight release deal. As much as I get it from a sales perspective, something about it feels patronizing as a consumer.
“Okay, kids… Everyone quiet down! If you’re good and eat allll of your vegetables—you can have dessert!”
Like, no. Let me order the shoes I want, when I want, so I don’t have to furiously refresh the browser at midnight to try and luck into a purchase.
But these Kobe 6 Protro “Grinch” might be the exception. They are the closest thing to a perfect shoe that I’ve seen in a while.
Plus, they sort of found that happy medium in which they are stylish enough to wear for a night out, but with the functionality to drop a triple-double on anyone.
Maybe I am just a sucker for nostalgia. The Kobe 6’s were always my favorite shoe to play in.
But either way, there is an overwhelming chance that you find me hunched over at midnight, trying to snag a pair of these.
