On Tuesday afternoon, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander took to Instagram to tease a potential shoe deal. The post description reads: “When I get back to the game, it’ll be with 🤫. Find out where the drip is landing tomorrow.👀”
Sure enough, it seems as if SGA has landed some sort of endorsement deal with a shoe company. The actual company? That’s still a mystery and will be revealed tomorrow, apparently.
Many Instagram comments are speculating a deal with Converse due to the “shape” of the blurred out shoe. If true, Shai would join the Warriors’ Draymond Green and the Suns’ Kelly Oubre Jr. as Converse continues to re-enter into the shoe conversation in the NBA. It’s worth noting that Converse is under the Nike umbrella of companies.
A shoe deal is all but assumed when you’re a star in the NBA, and SGA seems to be heading in the right direction with tomorrow’s announcement. Is it Converse? Adidas? Nike? Maybe Shai is throwing us all for a loop and signing with Sketchers? Check out the post below to find your own set of clues.
