Every year he gets more and more engaged and understands more about our process in creating shoes.

The first time we met him and gave him a pair of the shoes to try on was during the USA Team practice in Vegas. With all the media around and everything, he wasn't able to fully practice in team practice with it. It would've leaked. But he really liked the initial feel of it.

It wasn't until preseason practice that he really went all out hard in the shoe. He said, “So far, this is the most comfortable yet.” He didn't want any changes. Everything was good.

We were excited that he was just so happy with it.
