Kobe Bryant ‘Medical Mamba’ Sneakers Have Him Back on His Achilles


Kobe Bryant is serious about getting back on the basketball court next season. The Los Angles Lakers guard posted an Instagram photo of himself on an anti-gravity treadmill. The machine uses air pressure to lift the body so little pressure is applied when moving. In addition to the rehab instrument, NIKE has outfitted the 5-time NBA champion with a specially designed pair of “medical mamaba” sneakers.

“Walking in my “medical mamba” shoes made by Nike in 2 weeks with extra support for the Achilles #alterG #bootoff!”

Bryant tore his Achilles during a game on April 12. He quickly went into surgery and has been recovering since. In less that two months, No. 24 is ankle boot free. Recovery is expected to take up to nine months. Bryant has been sharing every way of the recovery process on his social channels, at times maybe oversharing.
