A pair of high-top Nike sneakers from the late NBA star Kobe Bryant is expected to fetch up to 35,000 Swiss francs (about $38,000) during a Nov. 11 sale at Sotheby’s.

The black, white, and gold Nike Air Zoom Huarache 2K4 basketball sneakers are considered Bryant’s first pair of Nikes.

The NBA icon wore them in 2004 during the Los Angeles Lakers’ victory over the L.A. Clippers.

Bryant scored 27 points and had nine rebounds and six assists in the game.

Bryant died, along with his daughter Gianna and seven others, in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, in January 2020.
