Kobe Bryant redefined sneaker free agency as the Black Mamba went from adidas to Nike. But before landing with the Swoosh, Bryant experimented with a handful of brands — creating one of the most interesting and PE-heavy sneaker free agency runs of all time.

While he couldn’t wear the same brand consecutively for more than three games during his 2002-2003 sneaker free agency, Kobe Bryant had a history of wearing Reeboks from the Question to the Answer IV in purple & gold variations.
