Conley, who signed a mega deal to stay in Memphis over the summer, spoke about his new sneaker brand during Media Day earlier this week. While having a chance to work alongside Michael Jordan is the opportunity of a lifetime, there's maybe an even bigger perk in play — he doesn't have to worry about lacing up Stephen Curry's "Chef" sneakers that have been compared to shoes worn by dads and nurses.
As captured by Alexis Morgan, when asked about the all-white Under Armour low-tops, Conley told reporters, "Yeah, I'm not messin' with those anymore."

Conley spent part of last season wearing the Under Armour Curry 2 mid-top and showed up to Media Day in the "Fine Print" Air Jordan 31.
