Basketball Hall of Famer Tracy McGrady Becomes Latest Elite Athlete To Join The VKTRY Insole Team

Seven Time NBA All-Star, Entrepreneur and AAU Coach To Be Key Part of Brand Expansion Into Basketball On All Levels
MILFORD, Conn. - June 17, 2021 - PRLog -- VKTRY GEAR, the fast growing, industry leader in Performance Insoles, today announced that Basketball Hall of Famer Tracy McGrady has joined the company as both a brand ambassador and a member of their growing athlete advisory team. McGrady's expansive experience as an athlete both in North America and Asia, as well as now being an elite youth basketball coach, will be key as VKTRY expands deeper into basketball on every level.

"We are very proud to have an NBA Legend like Tracy McGrady joining Team VKTRY as both a spokesperson and advisor," said Steve Wasik VKTRY CEO. "It seems only natural that one of the most explosive scorers of his generation is now representing the most explosive sports insole ever created. As an elite athlete and now coach for one of the best AAU programs in America, Tracy's experience is incredibly helpful as the VKTRY business continues to grow."

"In basketball, jumping a couple inches higher and having a more explosive first step, makes a huge difference in your game," McGrady added. "Besides the performance benefits, I really like the added stability and shock absorption you get with VKs which helps to protect against injuries. I think all athletes, parents and coaches should try VKTRY Insoles for themselves - I'm glad I did."

Tracy McGrady was one of the toughest competitors during his 15-year NBA career. He was a seven-time NBA All-Star, seven-time All-NBA selection, two-time NBA scoring champion, and winner of the NBA Most Improved Player Award. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2017. McGrady entered the NBA straight out of high school and was selected as the ninth overall pick by the Toronto Raptors in the 1997 NBA draft. In 2000, he left the Raptors for the Orlando Magic, where he became one of the league's most prolific scorers and a candidate for the NBA Most Valuable Player Award. In 2004, he was traded to the Houston Rockets, where he paired with center Yao Ming to help the Rockets become a perennial playoff team. He retired in 2013 following a brief stint with the Qingdao DoubleStar Eagles of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) and the San Antonio Spurs.

Made from aerospace-grade carbon fiber, VKTRY Insoles store and return energy to the athlete. They also provide a "spring-like" effect to improve shock absorption and reduce the load and stress on the athlete's body.
