Meet GOAT, Kyle Kuzma’s Newest Sneaker Sponsor

Posted on

“GOAT has inspired me to start collecting more seriously and build my style around sneakers,” Kuzma said in a press release. “People assume that, as an NBA athlete, you can get access to any kind of sneaker you want. When in reality, it’s hard to get the exclusive releases or shoes from the past, and feel confident they’re authentic. GOAT gives me a second chance at not only the limited releases I missed, but also the shoes I wasn’t able to afford growing up.”

While a number of NBA players have recently signed new sneaker deals, LA Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma is embarking on a partnership of a different breed. Already a Nike-sponsored athlete, Kuzma has inked a contract with resell platform GOAT, as they will provide Kuz with Nike heat to wear both on and off the court..

In a year where the NBA has finally done away with its footwear restrictions, allowing players to rock virtually whatever sneakers they want in games, Kuzma and GOAT have a seemingly endless array to choose from. Coinciding with the announcement, GOAT teases images of Virgil Abloh’s OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Force 1 “MoMA” and the LeBron 10 “Crown Jewel,” implying that Kuzma will be lacing those up at some point during the season.

    Kuz has definitely caught a lot of people’s attention. The progression from his Rookie season to now is incredible to watch. All I can say is WOW! He is so talented and with his hard work and determination the sky is the limit for him. This season has been a true testament of what’s to come for the Lakers. I definitely see a parade coming our way within the next two years. That’s why I need my KUZMA gear to support any way I can. I’m loving the constant support each teammate has for one another, the camaraderie is there now it’s just getting use to each individual players talent. I’m also loving the on running jokes between Kuz, Zo, and Josh.

    The story of Kyle Kuzma is inspiring to many to say the least. To see someone accomplish so much to this point and to see that’s its only the beginning of something very special. I started following Kuzma, being a fan of his early on in his rookie year. I’ve been lucky to have met him at two of his autograph signing events and can honestly say he is a genuine person. A person cant help but to be a fan of his. I can’t wait for the day to see him hoist a championship trophy one day. The Mamba Mentality will make it happen. Kyle Kuzma, you have an army of fans behind you, I wish you nothing but the best on and off the court. Be more than an athlete, you have it in you to be everything you dreamed of and more!!

    I lived in Flint Michigan in my adolescence and I am always looking for ways to connect people back to remainders. One of my friends Jess Mathews is one such person. You might know her already, as she is a well known leader in Flint. She has written a few books and is Michigans 2018 Secondary English teacher of the year.

    I know that she has a learning cafe as apart of her class. Students can study have warm drinks and food.

    I wondered if you would be willing to schedule a visit with her and her class. Maybe entertain an opportunity to listen to students needs and grant their requests to support leadership initiatives at the school.

    Blessings

    Kyle Kuzma caught my interest last season, his style of playing the game and presence on the court intrigued me. I had to get to know more about him…now I’ve been a HUGE fan! I just can’t get enough of this guy on and off the court. His commitment to the game and his hometown is so inspiring. Keep it up Kuz!!!
