Austin Reaves To Get His Own Signature Shoe: First Look

Austin Reaves has been playing exceptionally well for the Los Angeles Lakers this season. Although he is just a role player, Reaves has been spoken highly of by LeBron James and others. He is one of those guys who can turn it on at any time. Moreover, he is giving some Lakers fans flashes of Alex Caruso. Although, Reaves will have to help this team win a title if he wants to be considered on that level. Either way, the Lakers are rolling right now, and Reaves has been a huge reason for that success.

Subsequently, it appears as though Reaves is getting rewarded for his success. Of course, a new contract is coming soon, however, we are talking about something much different. According to Nick DePaula of ESPN, Austin Reaves will now be getting his very own signature shoe. Overall, this is an incredible achievement for any player. As you can expect though, Reaves isn't getting his own shoe with Nike, Adidas, or Jumpman. Instead, his shoe will be with a Chinese brand called Rigorer.

Austin Reaves Will Hoop In Style

As DePaula reports, Reaves has actually been with Rigorer since last season. However, he is set to release this new signature model in the Summertime. In the tweet above, you can see that this shoe is called the Rigorer AR1. Additionally, the very first color scheme will be black with purple and gold mixed in throughout. Of course, this is simply a reference to the Los Angeles Lakers. We're sure there will be plenty of other colorways to be released, however, this is all we have for the time being.

While some may argue that Austin Reaves is not worthy of a signature shoe, Rigorer would have to beg to differ. He is their first NBA endorsement, which means they had to give him his own model. Furthermore, this could very well lead to various other NBA stars hopping on board the Rigorer train. Let us know what you think of this sneaker, in the comments section down below.
