At the onset of his NBA career, Wade signed a deal with Converse and helped bring the brand into the modern basketball era.
He began his career wearing the Converse Loaded Weapon sneakers. His first signature shoe, the Converse Wade 1, became a massive success globally.
It wasn’t until 2009 that Wade exited his contract with Converse to sign with Air Jordan.
Now, Green has the opportunity to bring the Converse brand back into basketball relevance.
While his Warriors are limping through the 2019-20 campaign, they are sure to return to being one of the NBA’s elite teams when Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson return from injury.
In the coming games, it will be interesting to see if Green does in fact decide to dust off some retro Wades and bring back the Heat icon’s former signature sneakers.
