In today’s NBA, there are 17 players who play in their own signature sneakers. However, there are more than 17 active players who have had their own basketball shoe. Players such as John Wall, Jamal Crawford, Kevin Love and George Hill had their own basketball shoes at one point, but have since switched brands. Below is a list of every athlete who currently has a signature sneaker.

Right now, there are four active players with signature sneakers at Nike. In addition to these four, Nike continues to make and sell Kobe Bryant’s signature sneaker. Top athletes at Nike who don’t have their own shoe include Anthony Davis, Giannis Antetokounmpo, DeMar DeRozan, and Gordon Hayward.

ADIDAS

Of these three Adidas athletes, Derrick Rose has been given the most love. Adidas has made and sold over 15 different shoes with Rose’s name.
