Mini soccer net for a goal?
Yeah, the NBA is getting a soccer rebounder!
That’s right, the Minnesota Timberwolves are getting the Nike Sportswear brand of soccer rebounders.
And it sounds like the brand is being marketed in soccer-mad America.
The Timberwolves unveiled their new soccer reboundERS basketball sneakers during the team’s first practice of training camp.
The Nike SportSwear brand was designed to help athletes recover from injury and restore speed, strength and agility, according to a release.
They will be available to purchase beginning July 9.
It will be offered in three colors: red, blue and green.
Nike Sport Swear soccer reboundERs will also feature a special soccer ball-shaped design that players can customize to match their individual style.
The new Nike SportSWear soccer basketball sneakers were first unveiled in 2014 and feature the Nike Basketball logo on the inside of the outsole.
They have been a hit for Nike basketball and football teams, as the shoe is designed to be lightweight and easy to move around.
The sneakers are now available at Nike retail stores and online through Nike.com.
