Interestingly, Hopkins himself is not sponsored by Nike, but Adidas. Back in 2016, the 28-year-old penned down a multiyear deal with the German corporation, which made him the face of ADIZERO.

Be that as it may, the WR surely loves the Jordan brand, as earlier this year he was seen sporting the Jordan 1 TD Low cleat and now even wears their gloves.

“He’s just a huge fan of Jordan, so he did this on his own volition,” said a Nike spokesperson.

As expected, the netizens flocked the post with their best creations.
