Jimmy Garoppolo Joins Jordan Brand

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has signed an endorsement deal with Jordan Brand, according to a new report by ESPN. Garoppolo and other newly signed Jordan Brand athletes will be officially announced before the start of the NFL regular season next weekend.

Growing in up Arlington Heights, Illinois, a Chicago suburb, Garoppolo, 26, has been a fan of Jordan Brand as far back as he could remember. Thus, his signing with the brand holds unique sentimental value. “Since I got in the league, it was one of my dreams to be with Jordan and it came true, so I’m pretty excited about it,” Jimmy told ESPN.

Garoppolo is still riding high off of his five-game win streak for the Niners at the close of last season. He was traded to the 49ers last October after backing up Tom Brady in New England.

Jordan Brand was always Garoppolo’s first choice as an endorser. Given his hometown, love for Michael Jordan, and other Chicago sports heroes, the stars were aligned through Jordan Brand. However, he was presented by others including Under Armour, Adidas, and Nike last spring. Around that time, Jordan Brand allowed the quarterback to test out Air Jordan cleats (although he considers the Air Jordan 3 his favorite). The writing was on the walls.

Terms of Garoppolo’s budding deal have not yet been disclosed. He did, however, tell ESPN that he’ll be wearing something special during the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings on September 9.


Kylie Jenner Joins adidas

Kylie Jenner is officially Team adidas. The beauty mogul/modern model let the world know today that she’s on board as an ambassador of The Three Stripes by posting a video with the announcement on her IG story, wearing the recently released adidas Falcon.

Some would say that Kylie to adidas was many months or more so years in the making. When the youngest Jenner first signed a partnership with PUMA in 2016, her brother-in-law Kanye West was vocally critical of the assumed but then unannounced move as Team Yeezy was intended to house the Kardashian/West/Jenner family as a whole.

The Kylie x PUMA partnership in 2016 lasted the course of the year with Jenner appearing as a model in marketing efforts for the brand while also wearing select shoes and slides in public and on IG.

By 2017, Kylie would be seen wearing Yeezys on the regular — among other brands — all but confirming an end to the PUMA partnership and a focus on the family’s footwear line. In May of 2017, big sister Kendall would make it official with adidas as an ambassador while Kylie would remain a wearer of Yeezy/Calabasas kicks but a free agent where a deal was concerned.

In 2018, Kylie proved the first person to don what looks to be the last of three Travis Scott x Air Jordan 4 collaborations. While her significant other is famously a Nike Boy with JB ties, Jenner juicing the Stripes for the duration of her deal sees the Forbes cover star continuing to make moves.

While details regarding the 2018 Kylie Jenner x adidas partnership have not been disclosed by the star or the Stripes, one would imagine Jenner would serve as the face and feet of trending ’90s nostalgia models like the Falcon and Yung-1 while her sister Kendall continues to front classic styles such as the Stan Smith and the Forum.

NFL Running Back Chris Johnson Joins adidas

It seemed to be just a matter of time before Chris Johnson would wind up in the headlines with proliferation of his record setting 40-yard dash time making headlines courtesy of adidas Football. With the brand ponying up $ 1-million dollars to the prospective winner that breaks Johnson’s record, the former 2,000 yard rusher decided to join forces with the three stripes as Chris Johnson has inked a deal with adidas.

Although the terms of the deal were not disclosed, Johnson will certainly be a formidable addition to the brand.

Jon Warren Joins Herschel Supply Co. as the Brand’s New Design Director

Jon Warren (a recent selection of the HYPEBEAST Hundred) has recently announced a new position at Herschel Supply Co. as the Canadian bag brand’s latest Design Director. After 12 years at Vans including his most recent role as head of Design Lifestyle for Vans, Warren will work closely with founders, Jamie and Lyndon Cormack and its Vancouver design team. Jon Warren gave the following statement to help set up some exciting times for the Canadian brand in the very near future.

“Jamie & Lyndon share the same D.I.Y. philosophy that I carry; I think it all comes from growing up doing what you love. Herschel Supply was something that they took on themselves and I’ve always respected the path they took. Working at Vans I had the ability to work and learn from some of the most talented designers, creatives, and business partners in the world. With Herschel I feel that I could bring my experience to the table and collaborate on future projects that allow us to push the brand in directions that only partnering with other like-minded creatives could offer. I am honored to be part of the Herschel family and look forward to all the creativity ahead.”
