Jeremy Lin Shoe
February 16, 2012 by staff
Jeremy Lin Shoe, The world, in case you hadn’t noticed, has gone nuts for New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin. He finally started a game Wednesday during which he didn’t score 20 or more points. Instead, he provided 10 points and a season-high 13 assists in the team’s seventh straight win.
Now Nike is planning to give the people what they want: to be #Linning too. According to ESPN Radio’s blog, the shoe manufacturer is “set to release the Nike Hyperfuse 2011 Linsanity PE,” a shoe that features New York Knick’s iconic orange and blue with ‘Lin’ written in script, “sweeping across the side of the heel” — they even got a sneak peek, as you can see from their photo above.
Lin’s new shoe isn’t likely to supplant the Air Jordan in Nike history, of course, but it’s hard to imagine what will happen if Lin keeps leading the Knicks to consecutive victories — and after the inevitable end to the hot streak.
As for the Jordan brand, 78 pairs of what appeared to be Nike Air Jordans were confiscated in Georgia this past weekend from a car driven by two South Carolina women, the Associated Press, because they are believed to be counterfeit.
One of the telltale signs, AP notes, is that the Jordan logo has the man himself with six fingers rather than the standard five. (So that’s how he broke all those records!) Plus, police were able to “peel the Nike logos right off” the shoes. Maybe that’s to add to the feeling of weightlessness?
Meanwhile, Lin’s brand keeps getting larger, and not just in the U.S.
Lin — who is the first American-born player in the NBA of Chinese or Taiwanese descent — now has more than 350,000 Twitter followers and, on the Chinese version, 750,000, according to the New Yorker. The publication notes that “last week, Lin rocketed to the number-one most searched item on Baidu, the Chinese search engine.”
