Kobe Bryant’s widow, Vanessa Bryant, has called out Nike for releasing a sneaker in honor of her late daughter, Gianna “Gigi” Bryant, without her permission,  EKO HOT BLOG  gathered.

Earlier this year, Vanessa took to social media to promote the Gigi sneaker, saying the shoe was set for release later this year.

However, she took to Instagram on June 3, to call Nike out. She told her followers that she didn’t authorize the Kobe 6 “Mambacita” sneaker for sale to the public.

Vanessa wrote: “This is a shoe I worked on in honor of my daughter, Gianna. It was going to be called the MAMBACITA shoe as an exclusive black and white colorway on her daddy’s shoes.”

After photos of the prototype Gigi sneaker leaked online, Vanessa wrote:

“In the 2nd photo, it appears someone already has Gigi’s MAMBACITA shoe in their possession. If someone can share how they have these shoes in their possession, that would be great because my daughters and I don’t have any of Gigi’s MAMBACITA shoes.”

She added: “Nike has not sent any of these pairs to me and my girls. I do not know how someone else has their hands on these shoes I designed in honor of my daughter, Gigi, and we don’t. I hope these shoes do not get sold.”
