The NBA community isn’t the only one impacted by the shocking and tragic death of Kobe Bryant. In honor of his memory, San Francisco 49ers receiver Emmanuel Sanders will be wearing some amazing custom cleats for Super Bowl LIV.

Sanders shared a couple of pictures of these cleats in a Twitter post that was accompanied by a legendary quote from Bryant.

Clearly, Kobe Bryant meant quite a bit to Sanders.

Players and coaches from both the 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs spent a good portion of Super Bowl Opening Night discussing Bryant and the impact he had on their lives, and the lives of others.

He will be deeply missed.
