Kobe Bryant has had an incredible run in Los Angeles, and while he's never wore another NBA team's jersey, he has sported two different numbers for the purple and gold. To honor the championships that Bryant won in each number, Nike has a "8 24" colorway of the Kobe XI dropping this month.
In addition to the "8 24" on the right heel, there are also symbols next to each representing the championships and Finals MVPs that he won while wearing them. The colorway used comes in a classic Lakers' makeup, like we're used to seeing on every Nike Kobe model. With his career winding down to the final months, this sneaker's timing couldn't be any better.
According to Nike Blog, this sneaker will release on Feb. 27 for $200.
