On Wednesday night in Toronto, John Wall was spotted wearing a new shoe during the Wizards game against the Raptors. More specifically, he was wearing Nike basketball shoes:

Wall has been a sneaker free agent since October 1 when his previous contract with Adidas expired, which explains why the J Wall 2 shoes had a quiet release this past fall. But at least as of November, it was expected that Wall would still wear his Adidas shoes for games. Tonight's wardrobe appearance indicates that that isn't the case anymore.
It remains to be seen which shoe company Wall signs with, which I anticipate will happen over the summer. But either way, tonight's game shows that Wall has all but severed ties with Adidas.
