Kobe Bryant's legendary career is defined by two distinct eras—the first 10 seasons during which he wore number '8' and the next 10 when he donned number '24.' In Aug. 2016, the summer following Bryant's retirement from the NBA, the Los Angeles City Council declared Aug. 24 (8/24) Kobe Bryant Day, a tradition that continues today.

This year's festivities include the launch of a collaborative Nike Zoom Kobe 4 Pack with LA-based retailer Undefeated. The Kobe 4 is generally regarded as one of Bryant's greatest sneakers, but where does it stack up against his other models? In celebration of Kobe Bryant Day, we ranked each one of his signature sneakers, from Adidas to Nike, below.
