After completing a 6-year shoe deal with Adidas, Kobe signed a big contract with Nike just days before his Colorado legal troubles went public. As a result, Nike held off for awhile on a signature shoe, and in the meantime, Kobe was usually seen wearing the shoes of the legend that he was frequently accused of trying to imitate. Opinions differ on that debate, but who could blame him for wanting to rock some Air Jordans. As you’ll see after the jump, Kobe sported a bunch of different Air Jordans, mostly during the 2003-2004 season. Some versions are OG colorways, but many have been personalized with Lakers color schemes.

In addition to the Jordans, Kobe can also be seen wearing some Air Force 1’s, two different pairs of Allen Iverson’s signature Reebok Answer kicks and the white/purple/gold Converse Weapons that Magic Johnson made legendary during the Showtime Laker days. We’re not positive on the time frame for some of these photos, but it’s safe to assume that most are from the period between leaving Adidas and when his first signature Nike model was introduced. Keep reading to see several pages of pics of Kobe sporting other player’s kicks. Thanks to brooklynnyc300, NY GIANTS 11, AF1 Beast and the other NT contributors for finding all the great photos.
