John Walls wears a never-before-seen Nike Kobe 6

John Wall has had a long and rewarding career. He is a 5-time NBA All-Star, Slam Dunk Contest Champion, and was named to All-NBA Teams. After playing just 40 games since the 2018-19 season, Wall is preparing for the upcoming season with legendary coach Chris Brickley. The veteran point guard trains in style with a pair of Nike Kobe 6 Protro Player Exclusives (PE).

The Nike Kobe 6 was first released in 2010 and was re-released with updated technology in 2021. While fans had mixed results getting the exclusive kicks, NBA players took advantage of a plethora of specially customized Kobe sneakers tailored to their taste.

Wall wears a pair of Kobe 6 Protros in a white and gold colourway. PEs pay homage to the “Big Stage” colorway of the Nike Kobe 5, which Kobe Bryant wore in Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals. Wall’s former Houston Rockets teammate wore the same colorway in the 2021 NBA season- 22.
