From an Adidas athlete to the New Balance Family
Jamal Murray has always been an Adidas athlete even before his pro days while playing for the University of Kentucky. After spending several years with the three stripes, Murray switched to the New Balance Family towards the end of 2020. While New Balance is not worn by many NBA stars, this is expected to be a great partnership given how dominant Kahwi Leonard has been with the brand.
Nuggets star Murray who stands at 6 feet 3-inch and wears shoe size 14 has over the years been associated with the following shoes:
- New Balance Two Wxy
The first New Balance shoe that Jamal Murray laced up was the Two Wxy. This top performance sneaker has an exciting ‘brain’ pattern borrowed from the KAWHI that extends to the outsole. The New Balance Two Wxy is designed for positionless players and it comes in exciting colorways that complement its functionality.
Adidas Dame 4
This was Damian Lillard’s fourth signature shoe with Adidas and it sought to celebrate the star’s unconventional path to the NBA. Jamal Murray rocked these shoes for a while and preferred them for their excellent cushioning as they had a full-length BOUNCE midsole. They were also lighter than the Dame 3 and had a breathable mesh upper that made them extra comfortable.
Adidas Pro Model 2G
The Pro Model 2G brought a throwback feel to the courts and lots of Adidas athletes including Jamal Murray loved these shoes. While it maintained the classic silhouette from the 90s it had the latest features including BOUNCE cushioning and a lightweight build. Murray will be remembered for using his Pro Model 2G to protest systematic racism and police brutality by customizing them with the pictures of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.
Adidas Dame 5
Jamal Murray once again opted for Damian Lillard’s signature shoes, the Dame 5 after they dropped on February 1, 2019. These shoes were outstanding for their bootie-constructed mid-top and their specially engineered suede upper. It also provided excellent lateral stability, fit, and cushioning with many people considering it to be the best sneakers in 2019 by the three stripes.
Adidas adiZero Rose 1
Jamal Murray is also famous for wearing the Adidas adiZero Rose 1, which is a retro update of the Derrick Rose look. These shoes were a classic celebration of the former MVP and it had a breathable textile upper, grippy rubber outsole, and Geofit collar for increased ankle support.
