Kobe Tribute: Buyandship’s Picks for Best Kobe Shoes of All Time

January 29, 2020

Kobe is a legend. Kobe is inspirational. Kobe has a place in everyone’s heart.

We all love the legend who was arguably the best player of all time and dedicated his life to the perfection of basketball. When you watch him play every night, he would give his 1000% whether he had a great supporting cast or a terrible supporting cast. That is essentially who he was: someone who doesn’t whine, doesn’t complain, doesn’t give up, takes on the criticism from people and uses it against his opponents. He had the tenacity and determination that we do not see nowadays and probably won’t see for a long time. He believed in one thing, and that is………WINNING!

For basketball players, fans, and anyone who has put on a pair of shoes to play the game, everyone knows that playing shows someone’s real character. Kobe showed this every night with his love for competition and winning that even while injured, he would not give up. That is character ladies and gentlemen, and that is an approach to life we all should strive to do. His play transcends the basketball court and has impacted many lives on and off the court.

We wrote this article to pay tribute to the legend. At this time we have heard many of his merchandise has been selling out but Nike will be working on catching up with demand. Don’t fret, there are also many alternatives like Amazon, StockX, and eBay, where you can purchase your favorite Kobe memorabilia to honor him.
