In 1996 the 13th overall pick of the NBA Draft went to the Charlotte Hornets, they chose Kobe Bryant fresh out of high school. Kobe was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers and the young man did not disappoint. His list of awards and accomplishments is staggering, he was by all definitions a Champion.
On January 26, 2020 the world lost 9 beautiful souls, in a tragic helicopter crash. Kobe Bryant, and his 13 year old daughter Gianna were among them.
We created these lace buckles, that can be worn as pendants on a necklace to honor their memory. They both feature a Mamba holding a number in an open mouth. One buckle is the number 8 (with a 24 inset into it) and the other is the number 2, numbers that Kobe and Gigi wore. The bodies of a mamba create an infinity symbol on the back, “Mamba Forever”!
We will be donating proceeds from these products to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation.
The Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating positive impact for underserved athletes and young women in sports. Founded through the vision and loving memory of Kobe and Gianna ”Gigi” Bryant.
*Lace Buckles are sold individually for those that will be wearing this as a pendant. If you are purchasing for your shoes, please choose two buckle options.
