JBF Customs has paid tribute to the retirement of Lakers legend Kobe Bryant by releasing a line of python leather Birkenstocks. Inspired by Nike’s commemorative “Fade to Black” pack and Kobe’s nickname, The Black Mamba, the sneaker customizer has put together a pack of Boston clogs that come in a gradient of hues. The shoe was chosen as it is one of JBF’s favorite shoes and they make a cozy choice for the newly-retired Bryant. If you’d like a pair, the cost of the base pair is included in the $1,000 USD price. In other words, no need to send in your own Birks.

The cozy clogs are available for order on JBF’s website now with an estimated two-month turnaround.
