Bryant recently shed his walking boot, getting custom-made Nike shoes to help protect his Achilles.

The Alter G treadmill enables Bryant to walk (and, eventually, to jog and run) while supporting a percentage of his body weight.

Bryant was injured on April 12 in a win over the Golden State Warriors. He had surgery the following day and is expected to be out for at least six to nine months from the date of the injury)
