"With the first pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, John Wall selects... Reebok?"
Big name sneaker contracts can get interesting. Whenever an electrifying athlete enters the professional level, all the major shoe brands work with the agents to talk about potential contract negotiations. If all goes well, the particular athlete would end up signing with the brand.
John Wall was a highly regarded target coming out of Kentucky, but he eventually chose to sign with Reebok. It's safe to assume that Nike showed some interest towards Wall's camp, and this Nike Hyperfuse 2010 PE might be some soft evidence.
I'm not sure if this PE was used in any sort of Nike sales pitch, but it definitely looks convincing to me. If the Kentucky Blue colorway doesn't catch your attention, the personalized logo might do the trick. This minimal "JW11" can be spotted on the ankle collar, which is obviously made up of his JW initials and his UK jersey number.
John Wall recently signed with agent Rich Paul, and is probably leaving adidas once his contract expires. He's been spotted in a few different Nikes as of late... Will we finally see a Nike John Wall signature shoe?
