The company’s share price dipped $1.36 in a day, but from there it has rebounded as the basketball business has moved forward, and rivals Nike Air Vapormax Femme such as Puma and New Balance have worked to improve their positions with help from Raptors regulars.
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 Nike Air Max 2017 Womens to honour the team colours of Charlotte’s NBA franchises.
For Green, comfort 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 Nike Air Max 270 Womens 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.
“I’m wearing a lot of shoes just to put them on notice,” Green said. “I’m going through and wearing more colourways than I ever have www.danemill.co.uk in the past. It’s all the same shoe. It’s just different colours.”
Likewise, Nike Air Max 95 Femme Leonard’s footwear choices reflect both his preferences and his sponsor’s broader strategy.
He’s not the first local athlete to align with New Balance, a Boston-based brand best known for running shoes. Former Nike Air Max 90 Damen Blue Jays star Jose Bautista wore New Balance in the early 2010s, and top Canadian tennis player Milos Raonic remains with the company.
But carving out a share of a competitive basketball shoe market depends heavily on Leonard, who figures prominently in the company’s social Adidas Superstar Mujer media marketing, and collaborates with corporate headquarters about the best way to leverage his starring role on the Raptors to gin up interest in shoes that won’t retail widely until later this year.
“He saw it as an opportunity to be an entrepreneur, and build this basketball Adidas EQT Support ADV Mujer startup with us,” said Patrick Cassidy, New Balance’s global director of www.garanterra.de consumer marketing. “He’s incredibly ingrained in everything we’re doing … It’s co-authored with Kawhi. We want his input. We want him to help build this business, and he wants to do it.”
For Siakam, the decisions Adidas NMD Femme aren’t that complicated yet. He alternates his shoes to extend their lives. Sometimes they match his Raptors uniform, but often they don’t. His teal KD10s are a case in point.
He’ll review his options over the summer.
“My next step is finding my next favourite shoe,” Nike Air Force 1 Womens he said. “Hopefully it’s my own shoe.”2019 - Track your workout and set goals with two new colorways of the Nike Metcon 4 XD, the ultimate shoe for lifting and high-intensity training.
