An emotional Austin Reaves said: “From growing up in Arkansas and being undrafted to now having my own signature shoe, this is a surreal moment for me. “Working closely with the design team, the AR1 is all about maximizing performance and efficiency on the court.”

“The AR1 not only matches my all-around game but is also adaptable to all players.”

These sneakers are a representation of Reaves’ journey. They were designed to match his personal style and preferences. The “Ice Cream” color is a unique and eye-catching choice that adds a fun touch to the design.

Austin Reaves became widely known after his breakout performance with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2022-23 season. His outstanding playoff performances brought several benefits, and one of the significant ones was the opportunity to have his own signature shoe. Reaves has recently inked a seven-figure deal with the Chinese brand Rigorer, marking a major achievement in his career. 

Speaking about the opportunity, Reaves recently said: “Yeah, there’s multiple times where I’m sitting there by myself playing a game or something and I’m just like, ‘This sh*t can’t be real,”  Reaves continued “I think there’s mid-twenties guys in the league that’s got their shoe and for me to be one of them is you know, special. And I never take that for granted.”

At this moment, Austin Reaves is enjoying the best time of his life with a million-dollar shoe deal and a fresh $56 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers. However, the real test lies ahead in the upcoming season when he must continue to improve and live up to the expectations surrounding him.
