Interestingly, Vanessa had gifted Kardashian shoes in the previous Christmas. These were Nike Kobe 6 Protro “Grinch” sneakers, which were released on Christmas Eve. Kardashian had then shared a story on receiving the gift, much like Vanessa did this time.

Accompanied by some fire emojis on her post, Kardashian unboxed this gift on Instagram for everyone to see. Even Kris Jenner received a pair, thanking Bryant for the gift. Patty Rodriguez also got the gift from Vanessa.
