The Brooklyn Nets guard burst on to the scene last season with his crunch-time heroics, his victory at the NBA All-Star Weekend's Skills Competition, and his status as a finalist for the league's Most Improved Player award, all coming after an unexpected elevation to the starting lineup following injuries to D'Angelo Russell and Jeremy Lin. Whatever spotlight Dinwiddie drew last season was hard-earned: coming back from a knee injury in college at Colorado, persevering through a stint in the G League before signing with Brooklyn, proving he deserved to be part of the rotation on a team with plenty of guard options. Now that folks are interested in what Dinwiddie had to say, he has hasn't held back. For the 2018-19 season, Dinwiddie has added a new medium to express what's running through his head with custom-designed sneakers, one for each of Brooklyn's 82 games. Over the season's first month, Dinwiddie debuted designs paying tribute to Rosa Parks, Jesse Owens, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, Cheryl Miller, and Muhammad Ali.

Dinwiddie's sneaker project also continues an initiative he launched last season, raising funds for the Dinwiddie Family Foundation to fund college scholarships. The goal last season was to get an autographed game-used item after every game from himself, a teammate or an opponent and auction it off to support the foundation. Obtaining the items wasn't always easy, but Dinwiddie found a supportive audience when he did. So this year, it's all him, with each sneaker auctioned off and 100 percent of the proceeds going to charity. "It's my shoe," said Dinwiddie. "Obviously I played in it. I just take a sharpie, sign it, and you know which game I wore it, because it's a one-of-one. There's no more like it, ever, in history."

Jesse Owens spent most of his early career in Cleveland where this pair of shoes was worn on October 24th, 2018. He won four gold medals in the 1936 Olympic Games and is one of the greatest track athletes of all time. Both sneakers come signed by Dinwiddie additionally.
