Bryant begins walking on weight-bearing treadmill

Kobe Bryant has started walking on an Alter G treadmill while wearing his “medical Mamba” shoe as he begins to rehabilitate his repaired left Achilles tendon.

On Friday, Bryant took to Twitter to display the latest step in his recovery process.

The special treadmill allows Bryant to walk, while carrying on a percentage of his weight.

Bryant is also sporting a custom-made shoe to help protect his Achilles after removing his walking boot on Thursday.
