What Do You Think?: The Next Signature Basketball Athlete

March 28th, 2013 by | 16 comments

sig shoe what do you think What Do You Think?: The Next Signature Basketball Athlete

Take a look at the NBA players that have signature shoes today and it’s clear that being a signature athlete requires the perfect alignment of skill, charisma, sheer location of employment, and a few other things that make a human into a superstar. LeBron, Kobe, Melo, CP3, Wade, and D-Rose all play in major markets where the opportunity for extensive media coverage is all but guaranteed, with Kevin Durant being the one industry anomaly of being a highly successful signature athlete playing in a small-market city; this seems like a healthy list that should hold us down for a few years, but being content only means one thing –  there is room for more.

The landscape of sneaker brands is unique in that some of these labels have become flexible with who they choose to represent their brands on that “face of the brand” tier. Take up-and-coming Under Armour for example; their lone signature athlete is Brandon Jennings, but with DeAndre Jordan playing in a huge market and his insane dunk placing some added spice to his shoes, the neophytic UA label has experienced some added exposure as the prime “indie” brand. While the responsbility that comes with being a signature athlete is something that can be compromised, Nike, Jordan Brand, adidas, Li-Ning, and Under Armour – the major brands in the basketball category – all have the room to fit in a new guy on the team.

But is it even time to welcome a new name to the sneaker industry? There’s no doubt that player names play a large part in shaping consumer tendencies, and with Kobe Bryant nearing retirement every passing year, LeBron well on his way to signature shoe history for Nike, KD well-ingrained in the Nike’s historical fibers, and D-Rose sitting prettily with a life-time contract, it’s a ripe-enough time for a fresh name to be thrown into the mix. Each brand across the board has a select group of athletes to represent their non-signature models, but is anyone ready to step up? We’ve narrowed down a list of the top candidates that may be worthy of sig-shoe distinction, so check out our list below and chime in with your opinions on this latest installment of What Do You Think?.

adidas Basketball is slowly zeroing in on the budding superstar that is Portland Blazers guard Damian Lillard. This rookie phenom has an incredible future ahead of him, with potential signature-shoe stardom with adidas in the future (it makes total sense – we’ll explain later tonight). Throughout the season, Lillard’s feet have acted as billboards for adidas’ best shoes, from their inline Crazy Light models to D-Rose’s signature Rose 3 and 3.5; yesterday night, Lillard wore the winning #LillardKicks design of the adidas Rose 3.5 – one that was selected by a fan during the miadidas #LillardKicks design contest. This Home-based colorway features a tonal white upper with black netting on the tongue and red speckling on the midsole and laces – a nice simplistic composition considering the wide array of colors available on miadidas. Check out Damian Lillard in his kicks below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for a thorough NBA Feet recap tomorrow.
