Nike announced that it is relaunching Kobe Bryant’s signature shoes and apparel on August 24th (also known as Kobe Bryant Day).
Bryant and Nike’s first ever shoe collab, the Zoom Kobe 1, laid the groundwork for what grew into one of the Swoosh’s most important and innovative lines, according to Sports Illustrated. After nearly two decades, the partnership concluded following the tragic 2020 helicopter accident that ended the lives of Kobe, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and seven others.
