On her own personal “winning streak,” Vanessa Bryant has unveiled new pairs of Kobes on her Instagram.


Vanessa offered a first look on five fresh colorways, although it is unknown if they’ll get a release or will stay as her exclusives.


In true exclusive fashion, Vanessa called these Kobe 8s her Valentine's Day "Wifey's"

Kobe's sneakers are no stranger to pink, with these Kobe 4s channeling their inner "Think Pink" motif from the past.

Apex predators were also a staple inspiration to Kobe's sneakers, most notably during the time of the Kobe VII. But these Kobe 8s channel the wild leopard. Different animal, same beast.

In what should be a Los Angeles favorite if it releases, these Kobe 6 sport Dodger blue.

While not as popular as "Black Mamba," Kobe's other nickname was "Vino" and these 4s channel the inspiration like fine wine.

Regardless if these pairs stay exclusive or not, Kobes are starting to come back after a period of dormancy, with a number already confirmed for 2024 releases.
