"These are the sneakers worn by the youngest All-Star in NBA history," said Nick Cepero, PWCC's manager of memorabilia. "Kobe Bryant's debut on the All-Star court at 19 beat Magic Johnson's record and held out against LeBron James's debut as both were 20 at the time. On top of the historical significance, these are tremendously beautiful in terms of design with the elegant purple Lakers color match and an understated number 8 sneakerheads have come to adore."
