The estate of Kobe Bryant has reached a long-term deal with Nike to continue producing both footwear and apparel. The pact was announced by Nike and Vanessa Bryant, the wife of the deceased NBA basketball player, nearly a year after the initial endorsement deal expired. "We're excited to announce our partnership with Nike is going to continue!" Vanessa Bryant wrote in an Instagram post. "I am so proud that my husband's shoes are still the most worn by players on NBA courts and that... his shoes remain so desired by his fans around the world."
