Nike-Kobe Sneaker Deal Coming To An End One of the longest-running sneaker lines could be coming to an end after Nike and Kobe Bryant’s estate failed to come to an agreement on a new deal. It officially expired on April 13, 2021. Nike released a statement saying Kobe will always remain “a deeply loved member of the Nike family.” The latest Nike Kobe sneaker to date was the Nike Kobe 6 ‘Grinch’, commemorating Kobe’s final NBA game with the Lakers. When Bryant died in January of 2020, prices for his sneakers skyrocketed on re-sale sites. Do you think the same will happen again now?
