Look at that one shoe that looked like a toaster. ...yea it was weird but it was forward thinking and that was more than 10 years ago.....imagine if they kept progressing to today.
His last 2 sneakers may have been designed by kanye west..
all his adidas design wise are better than his nikes.
To true! They were taking off, with his line! The moon boot kobe 2s, 3s, were NICE. That rape incident dulled, the luster. I wish he'd stayed with Adidas.
IIRC the rape thing happened after he had already left Adidas. Kobe was still signed with Adidas in the 02/03 season, but hated the Kobe IIs so much he reverted back to wearing the Kobe Is for a short time before Adidas got into it with him, saying he had to wear the Kobe IIs to sell more of his latest sneaker. He didn't like this, so even though he was still under contract with Adidas, he started wearing Nikes, Jordans, Reeboks, Etc. for the rest of the season. He got out of his Adidas contract and signed with Nike. The Huarache 2k4 was supposed to be his first signature shoe with Nike, but last minute they pulled his name from the shoe due to the rape allegations. Nike still kept him under contract, but did so quietly, without a signature model, until the rape trial was over and he was found innocent.
