In 2015 Washington Wizard John Wall teamed up with Adidas and NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to launch the J Wall I Black History Month sneaker, part of a collection of four sneakers honoring Abdul-Jabbar. The uppers are printed with inspirational quotes by Abdul-Jabbar representing four pivotal moments in the Hall of Famer’s career. Proceeds from the collection went to support Abdul-Jabbar’s Sky Hook Foundation, an organization committed to helping children in under-served communities.
