John Wall’s Hyperfuse Promo

by Chris O’Leary/@olearychris

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.

    Logo is kinda tight, and those hyperfuse are very comfortable. Reebok’s have always hurt my feet. That Reebok contract must have been sick for him to pass on Nike.

    lol Yeah, those Zigslashes are damn narrow! Good thing I saw a pair of TS Heatchecks for $50. Couldn’t pass up a pair of Adidas for 50.

    How is signing for the company with the best product (and usually for less money unless you’re a superstar) selling out?

  • slamfan4life

    How is endorsing one company’s product over another “selling out”? I mean, isn’t signing an endorsement contract “selling out” by definition?

    Yo, I like JW going to Rbk. Changing the game up a little. Nike has everyone and you never even see some of their studs on tv or mags or anything.

    Maybe the JW11 logo inspired him to go Zig…check it out.
