Looks like Nike has big plans for 2018, recently confirming new signature shoe additions for NBA superstars Russell Westbrook and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Confirmed by Nike CEO Mark Parker himself during the brand’s Q2 earnings call on Thursday, Parker announced Nike also plans to build its basketball division and Jordan subsidiary.
Mark Parker stated:
“In the next several weeks alone, we’ll deliver the next version of the industry’s biggest signature shoe with the Kyrie 4. We’ll build on the incredible first year of Paul George’s signature shoe with the PG2. We’ll introduce an all-new Flyknit construction with Kobe’s next performance design. And Jordan Brand will launch its first signature shoe with reigning MVP Russell Westbrook. We’re also thrilled to expand our relationship with Giannis Antetokounmpo as we bring his unique personality to life through new signature product and storytelling next year.”
