Fans mourning the loss of Kobe Bryant may have trouble finding some of the late NBA star’s gear.

Nike says it temporarily sold out of Bryant-related merchandise from its online store.

A spokesperson is contradicting earlier reports the company removed the products on purpose.

In fact, new versions of the popular Kobe 5 Protro shoes are scheduled for release in early February.

Nearly a quarter of current NBA players wear Bryant’s sneakers.
