De’aaron Martez Fox is among the top-ranking point guards in American professional basketball, currently playing for the Sacramento Kings. Before signing up for the Kings, he played for the Kentucky Wildcats (college basketball), the platform that allowed him to get into the 2017 NBA draft. Born on December 20, 1997, De’aaron Fox is a star many people believe holds the potential to drive Sacramento Kings to greater heights. As such, it is not surprising that the Kings decided to lock him up with the highest value contract extension (worth $163 million but could rise to $195.6 million) that runs up to 2026.

A partnership with Nike led to the birth of the ‘Swipa’ (Fox’s nickname), a mismatched and multicolored creation with the DNA of the Air Max 1.
