Kobe Bryant’s namesake shoes have greatly swayed consumers and basketball fans with their shoe preferences.
His Nike signature shoes selling $50 million came second in terms of domestic sales in the US. Miami’s MVP Lebron James topped the list with $300 million. Carmelo Anthony’s Jordan brand came in third with $40 million, Kevin Durant’s Nike with $35 million came fourth, and Derrick Rose’s $25 million Adidas sales landed in the fifth.
Even after landing in the second spot, the slam dunk giant is still considered the biggest star in China and all over Asia. He was quickly offered a contract by Adidas when he was 17 years old before he transferred to Nike in 2003.
His shoes features creative colors, designed for quality performance and have modified functions in every release to fit the needs of the customers.
