Random Sneaker Ramblings…

April 6, 2010
tags: ,

TazzJazzFan sent me a link to AK’s shoe on the Nike website yesterday (home shoe image from the Nike website; away shoe image taken by my Rockets photographer friend when the Jazz played in Houston in February).

I can’t say much about the shoe because I’m in flip-flops all year round and know next to nothing about sneakers (Liz Lemon says that kids nowadays call them “kicks,” so I’m likely behind on terminology as well…) Aaaaaanyway, I was looking around on the site and even though AK is clearly with Nike, he is the only Jazz player (excluding Yatta and OJ) signed with Nike omitted from the “Nike Family” Jazz page.

(BTW, see who just happened to be on the rotating banner at the top of the page when I screencapped? +1 for cool coincidences.)

Just for the record, Yatta and OJ also wear Nike…

…while KK, who is the only non-SWOOSH-Nike Jazzman, wears Converse, which is owned by Nike.* (Dear Converse, You know where to send the commission check when your Utahn women’s shoe sales start skyrocketing. Thanks in advance.)

*As pointed out to me by TazzJazzFan in the comments section.

Yes, it’s true what you’re thinking. There was absolutely no point to this post. Apart from me trying to get money from Converse, that is.

    Thanks for the namecheck!
    BTW, Converse are now owned by Nike.

    Well Moni, that could be construed as “sneaky” marketing on your part. But must always looking toward sources of revenue, hopefully it arrives at the right place too.!! :)
