College Kicks on Court Classic // Signature Kobes in NCAA Action

by Ian Stonebrook & Luis Torres

Kobe Bryant didn’t go to college but his legacy is for sure felt on the NCAA hardwood.

With signature models spanning both adidas and Nike, his footprint is all over the amateur game with schools seeing PE versions of his famed OG and young stars digging in the vaults to pay homage to the Black Mamba with makeups that don’t even match their school colors.

Going in order of signature model, see some of the best Kobe signatures to hit College Kicks on Court.
