As the hottest high school prospect in NBA history, every game was a pivotal one for LeBron James. But in February 2002, the junior’s face-off with top senior prospect Carmelo Anthony was frenzied even by LeBron’s standards. Before the game, LeBron had the opportunity to meet Kobe Bryant. The Lakers star was in the midst of his third-straight championship season and took an interest in the 17-year-old kid, gifting him Rally’s #LJKOBE, a pair of custom Adidas Kobe sneakers. LeBron wore #LJKOBE as he scored 36 points in front of more than 11,000 fans.

“I think my most fond moment is he gave me his shoes when I was in high school”

#LJKOBE Details

#LJKOBE features the “Mamba” silhouette on the insoles as well as an American flag themed colorway, designed to honor the victims of the September 11th attacks the previous year. #LJKOBE was mentioned by James to ESPN, explaining that Bryant gave him a pair of shoes that he wore the following night: “I was a [size] 15 and he was a 14, and I wore them anyway, and I sat and just talked to him for a bit. He gave me the shoes and I rocked them in the game.”
