Vanessa Bryant now takes care of everything related to Kobe and Gigi. From their legacy to the business side of things, she manages everything. About a year ago, when the footwear giant Nike leaked the Mambacita shoes, she openly condemned the company. The shoes were designed by Vanessa with the intention of honoring Gigi’s legacy. She complained that the release of those shoes was unauthorized and she demanded that the company give her an explanation for the same. She said that “I do not know how someone else has their hands on shoes I designed in honor of my daughter.”
