Marqueesole posted a video on its site today showing a brief promo that Nike must have made this time last year in an attempt to lure John Wall to the Swoosh. In it, a John Wall custom Nike Hyperfuse shoe is shown slowly at a number of different angles. A JW11 logo is on the heel of the shoe and it’s in Wizards’ blue.
Obviously, things went in another direction for Wall, who signed with Reebok before the NBA Draft. The video’s cool though and kind of makes you marvel at Marqueesole’s reach with Nike. First they get their hands on sneaks that people are drooling over months before anyone else and now they’ve got this video? It’s interesting, to say the least.
