Tumultuous Beginning

Fresh off of inking a lucrative endorsement deal with Nike, the relationship between Bryant and the aforementioned footwear brand would be tested beyond belief as the charges of Sexual Assault would loom over Bryant during the Summer of 2003; a charge in which would be ultimately dismissed. With much speculation incurring that the Nike Air Huarache 2K4 was truly meant for Bryant, his debut signature line would not be unveiled until the 2005-2006 season with the Nike Zoom Kobe 1.

With its minimalistic design and yet innovative performance features, the Nike Zoom Kobe 1 would help Bryant amass one of his finest statistical performances as his notable outings of 81 points and 62 point in three quarters will forever live in NBA lore.
