How much Nike is paying Caitlin Clark with historic shoe contract

According to the Wall Street Journal, the recently drafted WNBA player is expected to sign an eight-year contract with Nike,  

with a possible salary of up to $28 million. With this large deal, Clark—who has never played on a professional court—reaches a noteworthy milestone.  

But her record-breaking accomplishments and quick ascent through the collegiate ranks have thrust her into the public eye,  

making her one of the most sought-after names in women's sports.  

Rival companies vying for Clark's support were fierce rivals to Nike.  

Puma swiftly pulled out when agents set a high standard of at least $3 million annually; Adidas and Under Armour tried their hardest but were unable to make an offer that was accepted.  

Ultimately, Nike emerged victorious, committing $3.5 million annually over eight years. 

With agents setting a high bar of at least $3 million per year, Puma quickly withdrew, while Adidas and Under Armour made valiant efforts but fell short in their offers 

Her marketability extends beyond the court, with endorsement deals already secured with prominent brands like Gatorade, State Farm, and Panini

As she embarks on this next chapter of her career, Clark's partnership with Nike promises to redefine the landscape of women's athletics and inspire future generations of athletes.
