Could this be Joel Embiid's first signature shoe?

Just one day after Joel Embiid announced his first signature shoe with Under Armour, images have already surfaced of what they could possibly look like.

Now, there's complete uncertainty with the legitimacy of these images and for all we know, when the official shots of the shoes are released at a later time - they may look nothing like this.

Still, it's exciting to look into things, especially for those who are sneaker-heads.

Currently, there are two different color schemes of the shoes floating around the internet:

1. Red and black with a floral interior

2. White and black with green, yellow, blue and red details

Could either of these wind up being The Embiid 1 Origin?

There are details in the design that match what it's supposed to look like, including the outline of Africa featured on the heel. So there's a possibility that we're looking at the real deal.

Regardless, Embiid's significant part in designing the shoe would make any fan proud to represent him on and off the court.

While there's no official release date in Fall 2020 just yet, it certainly gives us all something to look forward to.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
