Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Matthew Dellavedova is getting his own signature shoe, reports Nick DePaula of Nice Kicks and The Vertical.
Dellevadova is leaving Nike to sign with the Chinese shoe company Peak, who will release the “Delly 1” on July 1.
Listen, it was already ridiculous enough when LeBron clearly parlayed his Nike connections into a signature shoe for Kyrie Irving. (Those Krispy Kremes are fresh, though.) While not even his god-like status within the Swoosh is enough for LeBron to get Delly a shoe with Nike, Peak is apparently less bashful about giving a shoe to the guy voted dirtiest player by NBA players and coaches.
A signature shoe for Matthew Dellavedova? Really? What’s it supposed to do, help you dive at the back of people’s knees on the court?
Think of all the actually good NBA players who’ve dreamed of getting a signature shoe. It’s now been forever ruined because the backup point guard with a 5.7 career points per game average is getting a signature shoe.
Our Jeremy Woo scored an exclusive peek at what the shoes may look like:
Think what you’ve done, Peak. Think about what you’ve done.
