In an exciting development for basketball fans and collectors alike, a pair of game-used, photo-matched high school Adidas Kobe 2 USA Flag sneakers worn by LeBron James are currently up for auction on Goldin. These iconic sneakers were gifted to James by the legendary Kobe Bryant himself before the 2002 NBA All-Star Game.
Designed as a heartfelt tribute to the lives lost during the tragic September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks, these sneakers hold immense historical significance. Inspired by the idea of honoring those impacted by the tragedy, Kobe Bryant collaborated with Peter Moore, original designer of Air Jordan 1, to create a special version of the Kobe Two.
On February 10th, 2002, during his junior year at St. Vincent-St. Mary's High School, LeBron James showcased his exceptional talent while wearing these commemorative kicks. In a game against Carmelo Anthony and Oak Hill Academy, James recorded an impressive double-double performance with 36 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists despite a narrow defeat with a final score of 72-66.
The current bid on this prized piece of basketball history stands at $45,000 after receiving nine competitive bids. The auction is set to conclude on March 2nd, 2024. The bidding frenzy underscores the immense value placed on items connected to iconic athletes like LeBron James and Kobe Bryant.
