After playing in the Air Jordan 2009 at the Jordan Brand Classic, Wall spent his short-lived college playing career playing for Kentucky, wear he could be seen wearing shoes like the Nike Hyperize. On the day before becoming the #1 overall draft pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, John Wall signed an endorsement deal with Reebok to become the face of the Reebok Hoops new direction.
