The Xtep JLin One is the first signature sneaker for the Bay Area’s own Jeremy Lin. After 11 years of professional basketball across multiple leagues including the NBA, JLin achieved the ultimate dream of every young baller.
So, first things first, we have to give him credit for his persistence and hard work. This is a great lesson in hard work paying off.
