One of the first sneakers Luka Doncic laced up in the NBA 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.
Doncic rocked this pair in the 2018 preseason in the popular “Grinch” colorway, which can be found HERE.
