Kobe Bryant is a name that’s already left its mark on history. The late LA Lakers shooting guard proved himself as one of the best basketball players to ever touch a court, but he was also a rather fashionable guy, and those who wish to be a part of his legacy can cop a piece of his style.
Coming to auction this month will be a pair of high-top Nike sneakers from the late NBA star Kobe Bryant, the Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard who died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas last year.
The blue, white and gold Nike Air Zoom Huarache 2K4 basketball shoes are expected to fetch up to $38,000 during the sale at Sotheby’s. Kobe wore the sneakers in a March 17, 2004, victory over the L.A. Clippers, according to the Sotheby’s auction house.
More Bryant items featured at the auction include a replica pair of Air Jordan 3 and air Jordan 8 shoes gifted to Bryant in the early 2000s by the Jordan Brand. The shoes were given to Bryant shortly after his contract ended with Adidas at a time when he was unaffiliated with a shoe brand.
