black and white color on her daddy’s shoes. I chose the colors in honor of her uniform, the number 2 she wore just like her uniform, the interior design, Kobe and Gigi on the gold back instead of Kobe’s signature, the interior details of the shoe (butterfly, wings, halo), etc. .
“The ‘Mambacita’ shoes are NOT approved for sale. I wanted them to be sold to honor my daughter with ALL profits to benefit our @mambamambacitasports foundation, but I did not re-sign the Nike contract and I decided not to sell these shoes. The Mambacita shoes weren’t approved to be made in the first place. Nike didn’t send any of these pairs to me and my daughters. I don’t know how anyone another got his hands on shoes I designed in honor of my daughter, Gigi, and we don’t. Hope these shoes weren’t sold @nike. ”

There was no immediate response to the City News Service for a request for comment from Nike.
Bryant asked for help figuring out how someone could get the shoes, saying, “… that would be great because my daughters and I don’t have any of Gigi’s Mambacita shoes.”
Another post she shared included a tweet suggesting that a retailer called Foot Patrol in the UK had “accidentally released a few pairs earlier.”
