A signature shoe for 76ers center Joel Embiid

For Joel Embiid’s first signature shoe I examined other Under Armour models he’s worn in the past like HOVR Havoc 2 and Spawn low for a familiar fit.


The ankle overlay is a tribute to his Cameroonian roots and the armored toe cap is a protective layer much like the phantom face mask he wore to cover a healing eye socket during his 2018 playoff debut.


“Trust the process” etched on the sole is a catchphrase/mantra that the 76ers hung on to during their rebuild and “The Process” nickname was later claimed by Joel Embiid.
