His retirement may be looming on the horizon, but Kobe Bryant was once regarded as the high-flying heir apparent to MJ — and the first to nearly live up to that lofty billing. With that in mind, it’s only fitting that Jordan Brand recently honored his accomplishments with a one-of-a-kind sneaker gift set at a ceremony in Toronto. The covetable tribute consists of a full set of the Air Jordan line — I through XXX — in a primary colorway of brilliant white, highlighted by pairs of the Air Jordan III and VIII in the white, purple and gold colors that Bryant has worn for the duration of his career. Bryant was also presented with an alternate full set of the Air Jordan line in black, which Jordan Brand announced that it would auction off to a lucky fan via eBay For Charity.
