Vanessa Bryant Furious At Nike For Leaked Kobe & Gianna Mambacita Shoe


Vanessa Bryant designed a shoe with Nike to honor her late husband Kobe and daughter Gianna.

However, after Vanessa's break with Nike she thought the kick,  which features a black and white colorway, Gianna's #2, and marks like a butterfly, wings, and a halo, would be deaded.

Instead, the Kobe 6 Protro Mambacita leaked, and Vanessa is furious, arguing Nike had no right to begin distributing the shoe because it hadn't been approved for sale.

The guy who posted the kick on IG a few weeks ago made it clear that it was Nike who leaked the shoes.

"I just want to make it clear that I don't own a pair of those Mambacita Kobes," the IG user said in a statement Thursday morning.

"The pictures I posted are official product pictures from a Nike authorized retailer. Unfortunately for [Vanessa Bryant], Nike clearly sent pairs to this retailer (as well as others) with the intent of selling pairs."
