Does Tim Tebow Deserve To Have His Own Nike Lunar Signature Sneaker?
We’ve never seen a professional athlete like Tim Tebow before. Sit down and think about it, if you haven’t already. When is the last time that you saw a guy who rarely even plays get one-tenth of the coverage that Tebow has received this year? When is the last time you saw people rush out to buy the jersey of a backup quarterback? When is the last time you saw an athlete star in TV commercials and promote products despite the fact that his own coach doesn’t think highly enough of him to put him into games? Never. It’s never happened before. And, now, we’ve got a new question to add to that bunch: When is the last time you saw a pro athlete like Tebow get his own signature sneaker?
Again, the answer is a resounding “Never!” But, you better get ready because it looks like we’re about to see it happen soon. Although there’s a decent chance that Tebow could be a backup quarterback in the NFL once again next season, Nike is planning on introducing Tebow’s signature sneaker later this year. It’s a pretty basic Nike Lunar sneaker that’ll be available in “Jets” and “Florida Gators” colorways as well as a colorway that’ll feature black, pink, and white in it (we wonder who Nike created those for?). As of now, we don’t have many details on the sneaker outside of the images that you see here that were spotted over on Sneaker Files. But, you can expect these to drop sometime later this year, probably in the late summer or early fall.
Will you be picking up a pair of these? We might, simply because these are pretty much guaranteed to be a collector’s item sometime down the road. But, we can’t imagine that too many people are going to flock to stores to pick these up. Then again, we also didn’t think that a ton of people would still be in love with Tebow after the disappointing season that he had this year. And, look how that’s turning out!
