As Matteo Berrettini split with his sponsor Lotto and went with Hugo Boss as his clothing sponsor, many wondered about what shoe he would wear. Shortly after announcing his endorsement deal with Hugo Boss, Berrettini announced that he will be wearing Asics shoes.
Berrettini reportedly signed a long-term deal with Asics and will wear the ASICS Gel-Resolution 8 shoes.
I’m excited to be partnering with a brand like ASICS with over 70 years of high-performance brand heritage, and such a deep, and shared belief in the importance of supporting athletes. I feel very confident knowing I’ll take the court wearing ASICS footwear in 2022 and the years to come.
– Matteo Berrettini
Novak Djokovic also has an endorsement deal with Asics. While it’s not unusual to have a different sponsor for clothing and shoes, big-name sponsors such as Nike, Fila, Adidas, and New Balance usually sponsor both clothing and shoes for their athletes.
