2015 Kobe Bryant Final Season Game Worn Sneakers

Though early career memorabilia is generally favored by collectors, items from Kobe Bryant’s 2015-16 farewell tour are held in high regard as well – making this pair of sneakers the five-time NBA Champion wore in a game against the San Antonio Spurs in his final season an enticing asset.

Key Deal Points

The sneakers have been authenticated and photomatched by MeiGray, the authenticator of the NBA.

Kobe's final season game worn gear was in extreme high demand, as opposing players all tried to get artifacts from Kobe's farewell tour before his retirement.

Bryant scored 12 points on 5-12 shooting in 29 minutes while wearing these shoes.

Valuation Analysis

“Flyknit, molded mesh and a rubberized sole became the mind, body and soul of the shoe—a natural progression from the Kobe 9. It may not receive a ton of love these days, but that does not mean the Kobe 10 isn’t beautiful.”

– Giancarlo Ferrari-King, Bleacher Report

Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant is one of the most beloved and accomplished basketball players to ever play the game.  Bryant spent his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, helping them win five NBA championships, and was an 18-time All-Star, a 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, a 12-time member of the All-Defensive Team, the 2008 NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP), and a two-time NBA Finals MVP.

Bryant also led the NBA in scoring twice, and ranks fourth on the league’s all-time regular season scoring and all-time postseason scoring lists. He is the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history. He was also the first guard in NBA history to play at least 20 seasons. His 18 All-Star designations are the second most all time, while it is the record for most consecutive appearances as a starter. Bryant’s four All-Star Game MVP Awards are tied with Bob Pettit for the most in NBA history. Bryant tragically died at age 41, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others, in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California in 2020. Their memories will forever live on in the hearts and minds of sports fans.
