Dwyane Wade cuts ties with Jordan Brand

MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade will not be wearing Jordan Brand sneakers and apparel.

The Miami Heat guard said Tuesday that he has parted ways with the brand. His contract expired at the end of September and the sides made what Wade called a mutual decision to not extend the agreement.

Wade said his time with Converse and Jordan has been an “unbelievable nine years.”

Wade made the switch from Converse to Jordan Brand in 2009. Both are owned by Nike.

Wade, who counts Michael Jordan as his idol to this day, said Tuesday that he still feels “honored to have represented my favorite player of all time and his brand.”

He has not unveiled plans for what shoe he will wear with the reigning NBA champion Heat this season.
