In the minutes after last Tuesday’s 107-95 loss to the Houston Rockets, Pascal Nike Air Max Tn Homme Adidas EQT Support ADV Mujer Siakam sat on a folding chair next to his locker, scrolling through his smartphone. The discarded husks of his ankle tape lay near his feet, as did the teal Nike KD10s he wore that night.
Across the room, Danny Green had already removed his Puma Uproars, and soaked his bare feet in a tub of ice water.All-star power forward Kawhi Leonard’s locker sat empty, its occupant having already stepped out of his New Balance OMN1S and into the shower.
No other North American pro sport is as closely intertwined with the footwear industry as the NBA, where the process of selecting shoes takes comfort, performance and marketing into consideration. And the various permutations of the relationships between player and shoe company are on display in the Raptors locker room.
Where Green is a featured performer among Puma’s roster of NBA players, Adidas NMD Mujer Nike Air Max 90 Damen Leonard’s New Balance contract forms the foundation of that brand’s return to basketball.
Nike discontinued the KD10s; the company and the shoe’s namesake, Kevin Durant, moved on to KD11s for this season. But Siakam prefers the KD10s, so he has stockpiled several pairs and hopes to make them last through what the Raptors believe will be a long post-season. His agent keeps nudging him to audition new shoes, but Siakam Adidas ZX Flux Mujer won’t even consider it until the summer.
“I played with them last year and they felt comfortable to me,” said Siakam, who enters Sunday’s game against Miami averaging 16.4 points and seven rebounds per game. “And that’s all I’m about, feeling comfortable in the shoe.”
Pro basketball rivals elite marathon running in its ability to showcase new shoes to large audiences, but that exposure comes with risks. Where Nike www.montajesavila.es spent Adidas Ultra Boost Mujer two years using virtuoso marathon runner Eliud Kipchoge to generate hype for its VaporFly running shoes, the brand had to scramble to limit the fallout when Duke University star Zion Williamson’s shoe disintegrated on national TV last month.The footwear malfunction spotlighted the exact model of Nike basketball shoe Williamson wore — the Nike PG 2.5 PE — but it also led to a sprained knee for the superstar Nike Air Vapormax Damen freshman, Nike Air Vapormax Femme who recently posted an Instagram video of himself wearing an Adidas tracksuit. At the time, Nike issued a statement promising to “identify the issue” and
Puma, for example, sent Green to NBA all-star weekend in Charlotte with Uproars model shoes with local flavour — black, but accented with teal, orange and several shades in between to honour the team colours of Charlotte’s NBA franchises.
For Green, comfort Nike Air Max Classic BW Mujer is just one consideration when choosing which shoe to wear. He also co-ordinates with Puma to sync his in-game footwear with retail releases of new designs. When he wore Nike, Green says he’d wear 10 to 12 pairs of shoes per season. But with Puma he wears more because his on-court presence is an important element of Puma’s basketball marketing.
