Joel Embiid To Launch His First Signature Shoe With Under Armour 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jan 15, 2020 1:59 am

Joel Embiid and Under Armour will launch his first signature shoe towards the end of 2020.


Embiid will be the only center in the NBA with a signature shoe. Sixteen current NBA players have their own signature shoe. 


"It's been a long and great process," Embiid said. "It's not a big man shoe. It's a shoe for any basketball player."


Embiid could debut the signature shoe as early as the playoffs.


"Early on in the design process, Joel shared that he thought his life was like a movie, and like movies, all basketball careers have origin stories," Under Armour designer Reggie Wilson said. "Since Joel's story began in Cameroon, that was the creative focus of our first colorway, 'Origin.'"

The shoe looks exciting, but you can’t wear it for the first two years because it’s too fragile.
