Inanunsyo ni Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid nitong Miyerkoles (Manila time) na ila-launch nito ang kanyang unang signature shoes kasama ang Under Armour ngayong taon.
Tatawaging Under Armour Embiid 1 ang kanyang signature shoes.
“It’s been a long and great process,” saad ni Embiid mula sa ESPN. “It’s not a big man shoe. It’s a shoe for any basketball player.”
Inaasahan nang ide-debut ni Embiid ang kanyang sapatos sa simula ng playoffs ngayong season ng NBA.
“Early on in the design process, Joel shared that he thought his life was like a movie, and like movies, all basketball careers have origin stories,” wika ni Under Armour designer Reggie Wilson.
“Since Joel’s story began in Cameroon, that was the creative focus of our first colorway, ‘Origin.'”
Nagkasama taong 2018 sina Embiid at ang Under Armour na may five-year shoe deal.
“As a kid, I never could have dreamed of being in this situation with my own signature shoe,” paliwanag pa ni Embiid.
“The process has been incredible with the work that’s been put in. Not a lot of guys in my profession get this opportunity, and I’m truly grateful for it.”
