Aussies in NBA: Matthew Dellavedova debuts the PEAK Delly 1

After a very long process, Matthew Dellavedova finally laced up a pair of his PEAK Delly 1s in-game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday.

After signing a deal with PEAK in July, Delly has finally graced the court in a pair of his signature shoes. Delly played the Olympics and the first couple of weeks of the NBA season in Nike Kobe 10s, with the handy duct tape over the swoosh, as the Delly 1 went through the final stages of development to suit his liking.


He first rocked the Delly 1s during the Cavs Championship parade, but never wore them in-game until Friday’s loss against the Pelicans. Over the course of training camp, he wore his PEAK kicks in photoshoots and before & after practices, but never when he set foot on the court.

It’s great to see Delly has the necessary confidence in the PEAK kicks now and clearly is comfortable in the structure and fit of the shoe.

As you can see, these are the white home Bucks colourway of the Delly 1. Look for him to be lacing up the green away colourway in the Bucks’ next game in Atlanta on Thursday.

It really is a sign of how far Delly has come in his career. Going undrafted, to now having his own signature shoe is a credit to himself and the work he has put in over the years.

Keep an eye on Delly and PEAK as they continue to build their relationship over the coming months and years.
