UPDATE: Caitlin Clark's deal with Nike is official, and she has signed a $28 million contract over eight years. Clark also received offers from multiple other sportswear brands, including Under Armour, who offered her $16 million over 4-years; adidas, who offered $6 million over 4-years; and Puma, who walked away from the deal after learning bidding started at $3 million.

Despite a challenging end to her collegiate career, Caitlin Clark's transition to professional basketball is marked by monumental achievements and promising prospects. The Iowa standout, whose NCAA journey concluded with a runner-up finish, has set records and captured the attention of major brands and the basketball world. So much so that it's being reported that Clark is nearing a major endorsement deal with Nike.

Caitlin Clark's tenure at Iowa was nothing short of historic. Not only did she lead her team to the NCAA Finals, but she also became the all-time leading scorer in NCAA basketball history. This achievement has bolstered her reputation as one of women's basketball's most promising upcoming stars.

Following her remarkable NCAA career, Clark was drafted number one overall by the Indiana Fever in the WNBA draft, setting the stage for what many anticipate to be a standout professional career. Her performance at Iowa and seamless skills on the court have made her a sought-after athlete for endorsements and sponsorships.

First reported by basketball insider Shams Charania, this contract with Nike is expected to be in the eight-figure range and includes plans for her signature sneaker. Clark is set to join the ranks of other distinguished women with signature sneakers, such as Nike's Sabrina Ionescu and Puma's Breanna Stewart. She will become the 13th woman in history to receive this honor, marking a significant milestone in promoting female athletes in a space often dominated by their male counterparts.

Nike and Clark are no strangers, as her first association with the brand came during her time at Iowa. She had a Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) deal with Nike and frequently wore Nike Kobes during games.

Exactly when Caitlin Clark's upcoming signature sneaker with Nike will launch remains a mystery, though it likely won’t be until 2025. In her new role as a Nike signature athlete, Clark will inspire generations of female athletes to reach for their dreams with the same enthusiasm and passion.
