Dr Disrespect hints at Michael Jordan-style Nike deal for his own “gaming shoes”
Dr Disrespect may have just teased his very own Nike deal to make “gaming shoes” in the future.
The Two-Time is much more than just the greatest gamer to ever live – no citation needed. He’s also a 6’8 freak of nature who claims to have more athleticism than Lebron James, Conor McDavid, and Cristiano Ronaldo combined.
As such, it may come as a surprise to many that Doc doesn’t have any sort of shoe brand deal yet, but that might be about to change.
During a June 27 YouTube stream, the banned Twitch star received a “call” on his flip phone to discuss a new shoe with “Nike.”
Dr Disrespect teases his own Nike “gaming shoes”
In the skit, Doc spoke to a representative from Nike, commenting how he plays with his signature violence, speed, and momentum.
“You want to make custom Dr Disrespect gaming shoes?” he asked. “I think it’s a great idea. Yes, I think there’s a demand.”
Doc went on to explain to “Nike” that people often game in their socks and the ground gets cold, so having some sort of competitive gaming shoes would solve that problem.
The Two-Time had to end the “call” to get back and play some Warzone, but he certainly sparked some speculation with his stream segment.
Of course, it’s possible this was all just a fun little skit by Doc and nothing is really in the works with Nike, but there seems to be some demand from the Champions Club. Some are already even clamoring for a signed pair!
We’ll have to see if Dr Disrespect and Nike end up releasing an actual product together, but it’s clear that many want the pair to just do it.
