The player a lot of people love to hate is finally having his last day on the court. After five championships, Kobe is undeniably one of the most influential players of his time. Like other NBA stars, Kobe also has a line of signature sneakers. While fans and athletes alike honor Kobe's career on Mamba Day by wearing his shoes, we wonder: Will the Kobe signature line survive beyond his time on the court?

Michael Jordan sneakers prove that signature lines can survive after a player retires – but until recently, Kobe was only selling a third of what LeBron James' signature line was making.

Nike's PR Director announced after Kobe's last game that they will continue to market his signature shoe. But will the brand survive his retirement? Will sneakerheads still want to buy them?
A history of Kobe's shoes: But all good things must come to an end. Maybe Kobe's time is over as a name that can move shoes off shelves.
