Every Sneaker Kobe Bryant Played In

In honor of Kobe Bryant’s jersey retirement we revisit our feature on every shoe he ever played in, originally aired on the date of his last NBA game.

Throughout Kobe’s illustrious 20 year career, the prep prodigy-turned generational icon has worn perhaps more kicks on court than any athlete ever.

His early era with adidas saw a variety of both striking signatures and unreleased PEs, his free agency bidding war brought everything from Answers to Jordans, and his Nike signature line changed the way we looked at both Flyknit and low tops.

Yes, Kobe’s gifts to the game range from highlights to high tops in a manner similar to MJ, but still in a way all his own. To celebrate his historic career, check out every sneaker model ever worn on court by Kobe Bryant in just about every colorway to the best of our ability.

Thanks, Kobe.

***Note*** Much like The Life of Pablo, this will be updated over time. If you see a pair missing, let us know and we’ll add it.
