Over the course of the past few years in the NBA sneaker game, we’ve seen quite a shift from the usual Nike and adidas endorsed athletes. For example, in 2013, Stephen Curry signed with Under Armour, Tony Parker signed with PEAK Sports, Klay Thompson signed with ANTA, PUMA signed a load of athletes to their new basketball footwear division, as well as New Balance signing Kawhi Leonard. Now, Reebok looks officially re-entered the performance basketball footwear market, as Montrezl Harrell will lead their division after signing with the brand in February 2020.
Harrell, a longtime sneakerhead on and off the court, has been seen wearing a plethora of different branded shoes, from retro Nikes, adidas, AND1, and many more. He originally inked a deal with AND1 during the Summer of 2019, but later left for undisclosed reasons in the Fall. Now, it is rumored that he has signed an endorsement deal with Reebok in their effort to re-enter the basketball footwear world, and compete with top level brands in the game.
Information regarding the terms, duration, and perks of Harrell’s deal with Reebok remains undisclosed. Reebok did not immediately reply to The Sneaker Brief’s request for comment on their newest addition to the brand. Keep it locked to the site on Reebok’s biggest moves in basketball.
