After a two-year hiatus from the shoe-endorsement world, John Wall has signed a five-year deal with Adidas.

The Vertical’s Shams Charania was the first to report the news.

Wall originally signed with Reebok out of Kentucky, where he had three signature shoes with the company, featuring the Zig Slash, Zig Encore, and Zig Escape. He then transitioned to Adidas, where he had two signature shoes, the J Wall 1 and J Wall 2.

After his contract with Adidas ran out, he held off on signing with anyone for two years, wearing both Nike and Adidas shoes on the court at various times.

Now, he’ll be going back to Adidas for his third signature shoe with the company.

No contract details have been released yet, but it is expected to be a lucrative deal in terms of dollar amount.

After signing a four-year, $170 million extension with the Wizards this summer, and now this endorsement deal, Wall will certainly be set for life.
