The Bryant family is staying with Nike according to Vanessa Bryant.
Vanessa Bryant, who was the wife of Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, announced on Instagram that she partnered with Nike to continue selling his shoes. What's more, 100 percent of the profits generated by her daughter, Gianna's, shoes will be donated to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation:
We’re excited to announce our partnership with Nike is going to continue! I am so proud that my husband's shoes are still the most worn by players on NBA courts and that the demand for his shoes remain so desired by his fans around the world. With this new partnership, fans will soon be able to have access to Kobe and Gigi Nike product for years to come and with Nike donating 100% of the net proceeds yearly for Gianna’s shoes to our Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation (M&MSF). I am also grateful that Nike and I will work together to establish a youth basketball center in Southern California that will share the Mamba Mentality with youth athletes for generations to come. I know this is an inspiring moment for my husband and daughter's global fans, and I am very appreciative of each and every one of you!
With Gratitude for every fan around the world supporting Kobe and Gigis Legacy.
