ADIDAS has unveiled the J Wall 1 signature basketball shoe and apparel collection – the first in a line of signature products designed for Washington Wizards NBA All-Star point guard, John Wall.
Highlighting the collection is the J Wall 1, which features a sleek, bold design inspired by Wall’s quick on-court play and fashion forward off-court style.
“Coming off my best season in the NBA and now launching the J Wall 1 that has my own logo is an incredible feeling,” said Wall.
“I feel really blessed to have my own signature line and I think my fans and basketball players are going to love playing in this shoe. It’s also a shoe with great colors and materials that you can dress up off the court which is really important to me.”
For the first time ever, the new John Wall logo is featured on Wall’s signature footwear and apparel. The John Wall logo consists of his initials, “JW” and is designed with the “J” crossing-over to the “W” to represent his quick playing style and ability to cross over defenders.
The cross-over element is also representative of Wall’s off-court style and how he transitions from a fearless player on the court to a laid back, fashion forward person off the court. In addition, the “JW” within the logo pays homage to Wall’s late father, John Wall Sr., who passed away when Wall was nine years old.
Aside from the J Wall 1 signature shoe, the J Wall signature apparel collection includes T-shirts, shorts and hoodies, all featuring the new John Wall logo.
The J Wall 1 launches in leading adidas and sports stores in the Philippines on November 1 for P5,995 in two different colorways. Additional colorways will launch throughout the NBA season.
