A classic Black Mamba sneaker that Lonzo Ball started rocking in the 2019-20 season was the Nike Kobe 6.
This classic Kobe Bryant signature stuck with the low-cut formula that was revolutionary at the time for basketball sneakers. The Kobe 6 featured scales on the upper that added to the mamba/snake aesthetic. Performance wise, this added strength to the synthetic upper. Zoom Air units are used in the heel and forefoot for added bounce. An external TPU heel cup was used to assist with support in mind.
Ball preferred to rock the green iridescent “Rice High School” colorway, which can be found HERE.
