In the last few weeks Kobe Bryant and his parents have been in the news concerning the auctioning off of a large amount of his memorabilia. It went all the way to court but Kobe and his parents settled out of court and a small percentage of the items were left for Goldin Auction House to auction off.

Currently there are five sample Kobe shoes available to bid on on the site.

Adidas Kobe 2: Red Sample

http://goldinauctions.com/LotDetail...he-Kobe-III-Pair-of-Sneakers-(Management-LOA)

"Rare Kobe Bryant adidas sneaker "Kobe Two" prototype. These red prototype sneakers were never mass produced by Adidas. There were perhaps only 4 pair of these slip on basketball sneakers ever made. Each shoe is marked 'Sample" on the inside. This is the only known existing prototype of the shoe. Shoe size 9 which was standard for adidas prototype shoes. Inside both of the sneakers is an adidas corporate tag with the project number, name of shoe, serial # and date of sample, which in this case was 7/*****01. Comes with LOA from the former Senior Footwear Development Manager for adidas Basketball."

"Incredibly rare and meaningful pair of Kobe Bryant adidas sneakers. Here is a pair of the final prototype of the Kobe Two Flag shoe. These were made as a tribute to those killed in the 9/11 tragedy. Kobe wore a pair of these shoes on the opening game of the 2001-2002 Lakers season in a game against Portland on 10/30/2001 , and also gave a pair to then high school player LeBron James who wore them in one of his games. Approximately 30 pair of these were ever produced, all in Kobe’s size only. Size of sneakers are in Kobe's size,(UK 13.5, US 13). Shoes are in original plastic from as presented to the senior footwear development manager of adidas. Inside both of the sneakers is an adidas corporate tag with the project number, name of shoe, serial # and date of sample. It is believed this is the one of only two pairs of these prototypes in existence . Perhaps the most famous and sought after Kobe Sneaker of all time. Comes with LOA from the former Senior Footwear Development Manager for Adidas Basketball."

Lol, good one. Was never a fan of shroud/zippered shoes but that late 90s/early 00s period had so many of them.

The USA flag joints were fly. Never liked the 2 or the 3. The Kobe is still a favorite of mine.

are his parents broke or something? why are they doing this to his old stuff?

http://goldinauctions.com/LotDetail...ng-14K-28-Diamonds-(Laker-Issued-Player-Ring-

Parents wanted Kobe to buy them a very expensive house in Vegas and he said no because he had bought them two houses before and gave them plenty of money on top of that. Mom got mad and gave a whole bunch of his old stuff.  Kobe took them to court and said they couldn't do that and they settled out of court and the little bit of items that are on the auction site are what they agreed on to be auctioned.  It's less than 10% of the original amount of stuff that was going to be auctioned.  His parents have always been suckling at the tit of his success, it's just sad.
