He never wears ’em.
Despite Amar’e Stoudemire’s recent track record of wearing whatever Nike’s he wants, Nike keeps producing player exclusives for him that he never wears. Last season, they came up with Suns colorways of the Nike Air Max Hyperize and the Nike Hyperize for Stoudemire, both with his “AS1” logo. He brushed those off and wore the White/Black-Del Sol-Team Orange Nike KD II, which he wore earlier this season.
Now they’ve created this Knicks-themed Nike Air Max Fly By for Stoudemire, again with the “AS1” branding. Instead, he continues with his steady go-to, the Nike Zoom Huarache Trainer; White/Blue-Orange and Blue/White-Orange for home and away games.
Nike can keep trying, but STAT ain’t buying.
