Nike confirm signature sneakers for Giannis and Russell
Two of the NBA’s most popular stars get the go ahead from Nike’s CEO.
Following the news of what Nike has planned for Jordan Brand and Air Jordan products in 2018, we also received info that there will be two new signature basketball shoes coming too.
Nike CEO Mark Parker confirmed that both Russell Westbrook and Giannis Antetokounmpo will be getting their own signature shoe, Westbrook for Jordan Brand and The Greek Freak for Nike.
“In the next several weeks alone, we’ll deliver the next version of the industry’s biggest signature shoe with the Kyrie 4,” said Parker. “We’ll build on the incredible first year of Paul George’s signature shoe with the PG2. We’ll introduce an all-new Flyknit construction with Kobe’s next performance design. And Jordan Brand will launch its first signature shoe with reigning MVP Russell Westbrook. We’re also thrilled to expand our relationship with Giannis Antetokounmpo as we bring his unique personality to life through new signature product and storytelling next year.”
No word on when both signature shoes will be revealed, but you can expect more news on the upcoming Antetokounmpo and Westbrook lines to come in the coming months.
