A Complete Footwear History of Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James Matchups

Nike LeBron 9 "Fairfax" vs. Nike Zoom Kobe VII "White/Del Sol" 

Game: Miami Heat @ Los Angeles Lakers (3/4/2012)
Stats: LeBron: 25 points, 13 rebounds, 7 assists; Kobe: 33 points, 3 rebounds
Winner: Lakers 93-83
Sneaker Winner: Nike LeBron 9 "Fairfax" 
 
James rocked L.A.'s Fairfax High influenced kicks on the Lakers home floor. LeBron's sneakers were better than Kobe's general release "Del Sol's," but Kobe and company knocked off the future champs behind Bryant's 33 in the mask. 
 
So as it stands right now, we've got the head-to-head sneaker score at LeBron 16, Kobe 9. And unless one of them switches conferences, there may not be enough head-to-head matchups left for Kobe to pull out the win. Then again, this is Kobe we're talking about.
