National Basketball Association (NBA) Christian player Jonathan Isaac caused a stir by launching a new line of sneakers, featuring Bible verses.
Orlando Magic Christian forward Jonathan Isaac recently launched a line of sneakers aimed at basketball players, marking a turning point in the sports shoe industry, according to the Christian Post. The shoes, named Judah 1 Triumph, are not only designed for athletic performance, but they also feature biblical verses visible on the back of each pair.
On November 16, the first pairs were revealed, with Bible verses inscribed on them such as 2 Corinthians 4:9 and Romans 8:37

Most people see the “Judah 1” as an outlandish endeavor.. shoot, when we first started, so did I 🤷🏾♂️— Jonathan Judah Isaac (@JJudahIsaac) November 14, 2023
I was afraid that delivering a sneaker that represented our values without compromising style or performance was too tall a task.. ‼️
But here we are!! ☺️👊🏾 The first basketball… pic.twitter.com/ErnMkhMtB5
"Most people saw the 'Judas 1' as a far-fetched undertaking at first. But here we are, the first basketball sneaker with visible Bible verses is now available."
Christian basketball fans will be able to get these shoes starting December 1st. A great step forward towards the integration of faith in the world of professional sport!
