Every mile driven, every minute on the road, (over 3,500 miles and 3,300 minutes) - It was all for moments like this, to simply put a smile on young boys and girls around the country. To let them know they deserve love. Thank you to everyone that helped support this mission that impacts so many. We couldn’t do it without you! #havAsoleEIGHTfor8 X @bgc_indy ...

True story - two gun shots rang out in 1991 as I slept on this couch here. I was woken up by the LA County Sheriffs but wasn’t sure why. I learned that my mother while in a drug related psychotic break, shot the woman my father was cheating with. Non fatal injury. My mom went to jail and we lost the apartment. I was forced to live in a car with my dad and the other woman at age 9. Through all the ups and downs this was among the most challenging. 28 years later on Mother’s Day, Mother Load by Wendy Adamson came out. (That’s my mom!) Last year my father read it. He called her and said he loved it. He called me and told me that he wished he had been a better father. All is forgiven. If we can make it, you can too. Mother Load is now on Kindle. Give it a read.

“Do you know whose shoes these are?” I asked. “Yea I play basketball, they’re Kobe’s.” She replied. We drove from LA to Chicago and our first pair of Kobe’s went to this young hooper. I encouraged her to keep balling and do it for Mambacita. #havAsoleEIGHTfor8 ...

After getting brand new J’s we decided to do a little light flexing for the camera. In all seriousness this is why we drive across the country every year. Each minute of every mile leads us right to these incredible moments that we’ll never forget. Uplifting our youth is our mission! #havAsoleEIGHTfor8 ...

Difficult to put today into words.. let me try.. we partnered with Derrick Battie and Douglas Grace who are doing incredible things for South Oak Cliff High in Dallas. They held a Tied to Success event where they gave all the young men new dress shirts and ties. #havAsole gave out 75 fresh pairs today however over 70 kids didn’t get sneakers. We leave for Memphis tomorrow but our Dallas Nike family along with @otc.show have agreed to collect the remaining sizes and deliver them to the young men that missed out. The @dallasmavs, @mavscare and the @maniaacs also showed up to help. After the event, they invited us to tonight’s game where @tamarajolee gave us an amazing tour! We even got to meet the incredible Cynt Marshall. Thank you Dallas - we feel so loved. #havAsoleEIGHTfor8 ...

UPDATE - our hearts are heavy and they’re telling us this. We are extending havAsolefulTrip #8 to #24 days and taking eight pairs of Kobe’s to his high school in Philly. Kobe was fighting against youth homelessness and we feel we can at least try to carry the torch. If you have a pair you’d like to send with us please DM us. #havAsoleEIGHTfor8 ...
