We've broken down the steps to get a shoe deal in the MyCareer mode of NBA 2K22.
Just like in the real world, players in NBA 2K22 will be presented with several opportunities for endorsements and special deals as they advance through their career. One of these—perhaps the most important, according to some fans—is the shoe brand deal. Here's how to get your favorite brand of sports shoes to sponsor your player in MyCareer.
NBA 2K22 MyCareer: How to Get a Shoe Deal
First, if you've got a certain brand in mind, you should choose the correct agent at the start. Archie Baldwin will help players to get a deal with New Balance, Adidas, Puma, and Under Armor. Meanwhile, Harper Dell helps players get a deal with Nike, Converse, and Jordan.
Second, you need to focus on building your fan base. After all, brands aren't going to want to get in touch with a player nobody cares about. Fans, themselves, are pretty easy to accumulate—any slightly complicated play or public acknowledgement will boost those numbers sky high.
From there, all you need to do is keep playing games. Once you reach a certain fan threshold, a shoe deal will appear of its own accord. Players will be given the choice of brand, of course, and are welcome to choose whichever available brand wants to give them a go. Just be careful to honor your contract, afterward. Wearing the wrong brand of shoe can land you in hot water and potentially risk the endorsement altogether.
Once decided, players can pick up their payouts from the deal every few games. They should receive and text from their agent when the check is ready.
