Stance, the official on-court sock of the NBA, has honored Kobe Bryant with three designs to mark his legendary career. The Black Mamba and his teammate are rocking one version during today’s game versus the Golden State Warriors. 

Said styles are “The Final,” being worn today, the “K. Bryant” and the “Kobe Faces.”

Says Stance:

The first of the socks, called ‘The Final,’ is purple/gold/white/black and is adorned with the number TWO on the right sock and FOUR on the left. This style is built on Stance’s performance basketball block—with superior breathability, moisture management and targeted cushioning—and will be worn on-court by the Lakers this coming Sunday, March 6, when they face off with the Golden State Warriors at the Staples Center.

‘K. Bryant,’ the second of the three styles, is a casual sock that depicts a cartoon caricature of Bryant. The twist, though, is that the left sock depicts the guard as he would’ve looked at the turn of the century, complete with a No.8 Lakers jersey, classic haircut and full goatee. Meanwhile, the right sock features Bryant in the No.24, with a shaved head and his infamous jutted jaw.

The final style, ‘Kobe Faces,’ is a black/purple/gold/white mismatched casual sock that draws inspiration from Bryant’s HeroVillain line of merchandise. Most noticeably, HERO and VILLIAN are written in Mandarin on the socks, and the foot features the HeroVillain and KB20 logo.
