    This. I hope that’s what she’s doing. I mean it’s her decision but fans do want to continue to rep and wear his stuff :manny:

    Can she even put out retros? Don’t Nike own them designs since they designed it?

    Really wish I didn’t beat the only Kobe’s I got left, but I loved wearing them shyts :noah: I wanna see if I can get them restored, they not OD

    Hopefully they can make enough to meet demand and get rid of the reselling aspect of his sneakers/products :francis:

    Makes more sense now of why Nike did the random restock of the Proto Grinch a few weeks ago.

    yeah. i honestly don't see the point of new shoe designs being put out without his input (no idea if they even had done new kobes since he retired, i'm out the sneaker game)

    but might as well have the ability to put his name/likeness on other merch/apparel without Nike taking a cut.
