It looks like the newly drafted WNBA star for the Chicago Sky, Angel Reese, is getting her own signature Reebok sneaker line. A bold move by the former LSU star, the young basketball player took to social media recently to explain why she chose Reebok over Nike.

Supposedly a lucrative endorsement deal from Nike, she explained that she favored Reebok because they did not have a prominent female basketball playe as the face of their brand. Reese responded to criticism stating, “So many different shoe companies wanted to work with me. But I chose Reebok. What was it about Reebok? One, they don’t have a women’s basketball player [as] a face. So I wanted to be that.” She added, “Two, Shaq. You know my relationship with Shaq. And three, I like how they’re rebranding everything and they’re letting me be the creator behind everything I want to do. So I’m having my own shoe line coming out, merch with my name on it…Y’all like what I wear, y’all like how I dress, y’all like my style. I wanted to incorporate that into Reebok.”

With full control over her signature products, Reese seems to have creative freedom and Reebok is offering her a chance to revamp the brand through her lens. Appealing to a younger group of consumers, Reese is expected to tap a new group of consumers through her social media community. Watch what she had to say below.
