JD Sports is all about the Global Player, and who fits that description better than Joel Embiid?
The Philadelphia 76ers big man and three-time NBA All-Star is a native of Cameroon, and remarkably didn’t play organized basketball until he was 15 years old.
His hooping journey took him from his hometown of Youende to Johannesburg, South Africa, then to Kansas to play for the Jayhawks, and finally to the City of Brotherly Love.
Now that the go-to guy in the Sixers’ frontcourt, there’s no doubt about his star power, and he’s telling the world.
Enter the newest colorway of his first signature shoe, the Under Armour Embiid One ‘Omen,’ which sends a message that no matter what, he won’t stop until he reaches the promised land of an NBA championship.
Featuring a royal blue mesh upper with red underlays, and outlines of Africa and North America on the outsole, the Embiid One is ready for any court, anywhere.
The shoe also incorporates a breathable mesh upper and a TPU wing for lateral support when things get heated on the hardwood.
