At Milwaukee’s Sherman Phoenix, Bucks fever is spreading. Noel Alvarado at None Above has been busy making Bucks-themed shoes.
“[It] definitely has brought a ton of new clients," said Alvarado. "A lot of people want to represent Milwaukee and the Bucks.”
Alvarado even artfully painted Bucks green on a pair of Nike’s for Buck Sidney Moncrief.
“Yeah that’s been amazing you could say,” said Alvarado.
