Kobe Bryant continues to be seen as one of the greatest basketball players the sport has ever seen and the best purple and gold player and the team's legend.

Nike has long stopped releasing Kobe Bryant shoes, but now they are planning to get them back to the market, but the most recent news by the NBA insider Nick DePaula, has their rival company doing the same thing.

"Adidas is re-launching Kobe Bryant’s 1st signature shoe, the KB8, with some tweaks. The newest “Crazy 8” features a different black upper texture, blue in place of purple along the bottom shank, and replaces the #8 on the tongue with the brand’s “Feet You Wear” logo." Nick DePaula said, “The Crazy 8 Retro drops Aug 1 overseas and in the US in September.”

Adidas is only releasing the first Kobe's signature shoes. The re-released sneaker has a combination of leather, suede and mesh on the upper, with Adidas’ classic logo appearing on the lateral side and tongue. This new version also features the “Feet You Wear” logo embroidered at the base of the tongue, replacing Kobe’s “8” jersey number while also appearing once more on the side by the ankle collar.

Kobe's family will be receiving some part of the earnings

Bryant will be receiving his fair share now that Kobe is done. Vanessa Bryant has been great at managing the situation and the different tributes the Lakers star has received in the past 3 years and before that.
