Our friends at Counterkicks broke the interesting sneaker news:
CounterKicks can exclusively confirm that Steve Nash has left Nike and has signed with Chinese brand Luyou.
Nike issued the following statement to CounterKicks:
“We can confirm Steve Nash is no longer under contract with us. We had a great run with Steve and we wish him all the best. We’re extremely pleased to work with the NBA’s top players like Kobe, LeBron, Durant and Wade, who wear our basketball products, the most innovative in the game today.”
The Nike and Steve Nash relationship ends after 15 years. Terms of the new Nash and Luyou deal are not yet available.
