Joel Embiid’s mouth may have gotten him in trouble over the years but his personality also helped him secure the bag. After wearing adidas for most of his early career, JoJo eventually signed a lucrative deal with Under Armour, making him the highest paid center in the league for shoe contracts.
Since it can take about a year to design and launch a signature shoe, Embiid first started wearing the Under Armour HOVR Havoc mid-top. This shoe features a mesh upper with synthetic overlays to provide breathability with added durability. A large heel cup also helps secure your foot with added support. The HOVR cushioning further provides what UA calls a “zero gravity feel”, with the foam giving you amble amounts of bounce.
