    Why would Nike not work with him and get his feedback on his signature sneakers?

    They probably just want them to take the money and wear the shoes. Nike isn't interested in their design ideas like that.

    His line is pretty bad, I'm not surprised that Nike doesn't work too closely with players on aesthetics.

    I'm not sure how common it is in the industry for designers to work hand in hand with athletes beyond maybe cushioning and construction preferences - even then seems like the company would just tell them how their shoes sits in the hierarchy / price structure and what is available to them.

    Why wouldn't his agent have that in the contract BEFORE he signed?

    They probably tried contacting him and he blanked their calls :hubie:


    Nike been falling off for a while with their overall designs some of the football/soccer shirts theyve put out have :scust:

    and I can bet they told him that you don't have 100% creative control over what comes out when he signed the deal.

    Kai has had a few good kicks in his line but some of em....ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Just like KD...I don't like the shyt with the straps. His best kicks were the 9's and the 10's.

    Huh? Kyrie's line isn't bad. What kind of under a rock line of thinking is that. :mjlol:

    Kyrie has had a few down years in his line but "pretty bad" is simply not true. :mjlol:

    Which is pretty stupid IMO. I'm sure most of them aren't design afficionados but their name is on the sneaker.

    This is why LeBron wears older models a lot. Nike doesn't realize they are shooting themselves in their own foot.

    I've said multiple times here that Kyrie imagines himself to be a lot smarter than he is.
