As a global sport, basketball has attracted the attention of many fans, and it has also become an important field for many sports brands to compete for layout. Recently, Adidas once again increased the basketball category, and signed many years’ shoes and clothing endorsement contracts with Grady Dick, the 13th pick of the NBA lottery, and Jay Hood-Shifino, a young Laker.
As rookies in the first draft, Grady Dick and Jay Hood-Shifino showed their excellent basketball talents and won the favor of Adidas by virtue of the vast basketball market behind their parent team. Adidas’ brand endorsement contract is not only expected to bring business opportunities to the players themselves, but also shows Adidas’ ambition in the basketball field.
The continuous overweight of basketball categories shows Adidas’ recognition of the importance of the basketball market. The signing of contracts with Grady Dick and Hood Shifino has also enabled Adidas to add two new stars to the NBA player endorsement, enriching the basketball spokesperson matrix. This is undoubtedly an important strategic move and lays a solid foundation for Adidas to make greater breakthroughs in the basketball market in the future.
As a world-renowned sports brand, Adidas has been committed to promoting the spread and development of basketball culture, not only continuously paying attention to and supporting the younger generation of basketball talents, but also deeply combining the brand with basketball culture. It is understood that Adidas’ new basketball shoes series "Chapter 03" was officially unveiled. This series continues the "bread" shape of classic Crazy boots, incorporates modern elements, and releases fashion beauty with the simple design of black and white. The shoe body is covered with dynamic synthetic fiber and TPU material, and the detailed elements such as zipper mesh cover make it glow with the charm of future combat boots. In addition, the brand-new Harden Vol.7 also brought surprises to the fans, and the vamp covered with mustard yellow showed the unique and simple aesthetics different from other practical shoes.
Basketball is not only a competitive sport, but also a part of fashion culture. As an important part of basketball culture, sneakers are not only related to sports performance, but also related to fashion trends. I hope Adidas will bring more cultural inheritance and collision, and create more legendary moments belonging to basketball!
