Caitlin Clark Syndication: The Des Moines Register

Caitlin Clark has emerged as one of the biggest sports superstars in the entire country – male or female. So naturally, it sounds like she’ll be getting her own custom shoe.

According to a report from Shams Charania, Mike Vorkunov and Ben Pickman of The Athletic, Caitlin Clark is expected to have her own signature Nike sneaker after becoming the No. 1 overall pick in the WNBA Draft on Monday.

“Clark is expected to receive a signature Nike shoe as well, those sources said. Under Armour and Adidas also made sizable offers to Clark, two industry sources said,” The Athletic reported on Wednesday night.

“Clark’s previous deal with Nike ended after the conclusion of the recently finished college basketball season, which allowed her to hit the market at the peak of her popularity. Clark was a supernova at the University of Iowa, breaking records and bringing new fans to college basketball. The women’s NCAA Tournament set viewership records with every game in which Iowa played, culminating in 18.9 million viewers for the Hawkeyes’ national title game loss to South Carolina.”

After a prolific college career, Clark is now taking her talents to the WNBA where she has already led to a surge in jersey sales and ticket prices. Fans will undoubtedly be lining up to buy her signature sneakers, as well.
