After the postseason in late June 2015, Anthony Davis committed to the Pelicans long-term, signing a massive 145 million contract extension. The franchise player would also get some shine with Nike, as his Air Max Audacity sneaker would come in more player exclusive colorways, with some versions hitting retail sites and shelves.
There has always been a marketing adage in the basketball sneaker world that big men don’t sell shoes. This trust in A.D. (even in a budget-friendly model like the Audacity) proved that Davis’ talent could not be denied. The shoes featured a simple ‘Fuse upper that helped provide durability in place of more comfortable knit and mesh. The Air Bag helped Davis and other big men with added impact protection.
