Original Rookie Jun UTAM
Vaccaro, who was then Nike’s marketing director in 1984, did an extremely crazy thing.
He signed Michael Jordan with all of Nike's athlete budget (a total of 500,000 US dollars), and this signing has now become a legend in the marketing world.
In 2003, James rejected Reebok's tens of millions of dollars of cheque, and finally signed a seven-year $87 million contract with Nike; this is also the largest rookie shoe endorsement contract in history.
In 2019, Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, NB, Puma, Anta and Li Ning have all come up with sky-high prices, and they are fighting against each other to sign the genius champion Zion.
Finally, Zion accepted a five-year US$75 million from AJ. After learning about this, Vaccaro's appreciation for Zion is self-evident.
79-year-old Vaccaro commented on the signing of Zion:
"I think this is the biggest bidding war I have seen in my lifetime. Zion makes me feel like it was in 1984. I'm serious."
After signing with Zion, CEO Mark Parker talked about whether Zion will make signature sneakers in the future.
"We have been in contact with Zion, we are working hard together for the production of new shoes, and I am excited about what is coming."
It was revealed some time ago that the Jordan Z Code, a personal signature shoe from Zion, will be unveiled in the first half of next year, priced at $130.
不久前有消息称，Zion的个人签名鞋Jordan Z Code将于明年上半年亮相，售价为130美元。
The track of historical development has made the contrast between Zion and James in the commercial touch section begin to form!
Although it is not named after his own name, it is recognized that Nike Air Zoom Generation is the first pair of personal signature shoes of James.
尽管没有以自己的名字命名，但人们公认Nike Air Zoom Generation是James的第一双个人签名鞋。
Compared with the superstars of the league at that time, Carter, who owned the Shox series, and Kobe, who was in the era of casual shoes, were not as good as James in sneaker endorsements.
Zion's rookie season, although the treatment is not as good as James, but an NBA game before playing as the main spokesperson of AJ34, it is enough to show that the Jordan brand attaches great importance to Zion!
Therefore, as soon as the news of Jordan Z Code's release next year came out, speculations abounded.
因此，明年Jordan Z Code发布的消息一出，就有很多猜测。
The first concept picture that broke out, many friends should be able to see that it is a combined design of AJ28+AJ31+AJ34, and the reference value is not great.

After , the design drawings of the shoes that broke out, although there are many design references for the shoes that are already on the market, the unique design style is gradually revealed.
For Zion’s personal signature shoes, the protection requirements must be very high.
once stepped on PG2.5 badly, the average strength of sneakers is estimated to be difficult to carry Zion's wear.
In fact, Mr. Rookie is very looking forward to Zion’s signature shoes, which can be referenced by the LeBron 18 just released.
designer Jason. Petrie designed the 18th generation of James' personal signature basketball shoes based on the "half and half" concept of palm speed and back palm power.

The special Chinese color scheme of the "Forbidden Heavy Object" inspired by the jade seal has occupied a high degree of topic recently.
Yellow tassels with red beads printed with the James Crown Logo, coupled with the old Beijing words on the tongue, the identity is very obvious.
Zion, who is completely healthy next season, must truly fulfill his talent! This talented 20-year-old boy is enough to make us think more!
