We look back at five of Kobe Bryant's top sneakers from Adidas, Nike and Reebok, over the years

Kobe Bryant is one of the most legendary basketball players of our generation. It's no surprise that he was elected to be a part of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame's Class 2020 just months after Kobe and his daughter Gigi's passing in January 2020 and officially inducted on 15 May 2021.

Though this is a great way to honour the late NBA legend, many others have shown their support by collecting items associated with Kobe such as collectables and memorabilia. But what better way to remember the basketball player than through a pair of fresh sneakers?

Adidas Crazy 8 "1998 All-Star Game"

Formerly known as KB8, the Adidas Crazy 8 "1998 All-Star Game" probably has to be Kobe's most popular sneakers from Adidas. It was first debuted in the 1990s and was worn by the basketball player during the NBA All-Star game in 1998. However, Adidas released a new version in 2018 which draws inspiration from the signature model. But of course, fans are seeking the original design—not to wear but to collect—because frankly, nothing beats the original.
