For the 25th anniversary of the iconic Air Jordan sneaker the shoe's namesake will be making some room in the spotlight for another superstar: Dwyane Wade. 


Wade is expected to debut the shoe in Februrary, and will be the first spokesman other than Michael Jordan himself for the Air Jordan brand. 

"I was in awe, because I know what it means to not only be a part of Jordan Brand but really represent Michael on the court in the shoe he would wear," Wade

told The AP

. "Very excited, to say the least."


Wade, of course, was personally picked by Jordan himself. Wade bailed out of his contract with Converse this summer to join the Jordan brand (both are owned by Nike), and it seems like the move was more than worth it.
