Rajon Rondo is poised to have a big year sneaker-wise thanks to his new partnership with Chinese sportswear brand ANTA. Rondo was long occupying that difficult level under his Nike contract where PEs were flowing on the regular but a signature didn’t seem to be anywhere in sight. The ANTA deal fixes that, starting things off with his brand new ANTA Rondo 1 silhouette. Continue reading to see the scenes from the sneaker’s introduction out in China, let us know if you’re feeling the new design, and stay tuned to our NBA Feet column for a glimpse of him sporting his new sig model.

Just in case you had any doubts about Rajon Rondo signing with ANTA, here’s a look at his first signature shoe with that brand. The sneakers sport a Jumpman-esque silhouette logo that shows Rajon in the middle of one of his quick cuts. Other personal details include his full name spread across the two shoes at the front of the lacing area (Although that does feel a bit more like a PE touch). Get a look at these first preview shots from Rondo’s ANTA debut and then tell us what you think about the ANTA Rondo 1 down in the comments.

Rajon Rondo to Join Anta?

rajan rondo anta Rajon Rondo to Join Anta?

It appears that Rajon Rondo might be leaving the Nike fold. The Celtics player is one whose name has been rising steadily in the sneaker ranks thanks to a string of impressive wears last season, plenty of PEs among them. Chinese footwear brand Anta recently posted up a teaser featuring a string of silhouettes of players yet to join the team, and a couple of those silhouettes are none other than Rondo, as pointed out by Sole Collector. Rondo is clearly a star at this point, but it seemed like he had sort of reached his threshold with Nike, one that didn’t have him in a sig shoe just yet. Could the move to the smaller pond of Anta be one that will give him a bit more shine and prestige? Let us know your predictions and stay tuned to see how the story pans out.

When Rajon Rondo returns to NBA action, the Boston Celtics are all his.  Rondo remains as the lone star on the league’s all-time winningest team after Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce left for Brooklyn along with Jason Terry, so it’ll be up to number 9 to hold it down both in terms of quarterbacking the team and drawing attention from sneaker heat.  Rondo can now claim the Nike Air Max Hyperposite we first saw yesterday even though he never wore them, this gold and black makeup now appearing with Rajon’s double-R logo on the tongue.  There’s also a bit of Celtic green on the soles, so check out these and more details below and and see the final bidding price from jenswi3 on eBay.

What Do You Think?: The Next Signature Basketball Athlete

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?.
