How will Kobe Bryant's newest Nike shoe find space in the NBA now that Bryant himself is retired? Via DeMar DeRozan of course, a huge Nike Kobe fan who's been wearing his shoes in the league for a minute now.

Kobe Bryant's new Nike Kobe A.D., which is just a couple of weeks old, has already been made in a player exclusive colorway for DeRozan. The shoe wears black and red that help it match up with DeRozan's Raptors uniform.

The Nike Kobe A.D. is the de facto Kobe 12, with Nike switching away from the numbering system after Bryant retired.
