The latest episode of Sneaker Shopping brought out NFL Hall-of-Famer Deion Sanders. In this interview with the former ‘Primetime’ athlete, Sanders explains why he chose Nike over British Knights for his big signature shoe deal, despite the fact that BK offered him more money. The iconic two-sport great divulged that he saw more “longevity” with The Swoosh when it came down to it. He also adds that L.A. gear was in talks but was “too gimmicky” for his taste. Furthermore, Sanders is now signed with Under Armour and says he’ll never work with Nike again.

Also along the interview, Sanders was forced to revisit his short-lived music career — the “Must Be the Money” rapper even drops a few lines in this interview. Watch above and let us know your thoughts.
