Long time sneaker afficianado Victor Cruz will get his first signature from Nike in the form of a familiar-looking trainer dubbed the Nike Air Cruz.
While the shoe looks like a mishmash of previous sneakers (and a colorway) that you’ve probably seen before, it makes sense considering Cruz’s love of retros and past hits. The colorway itself looks similar to the Air Jordan 3 in Black/ Cement, a sneaker he’s worn quite a few times. The only difference is the usage of a safari print from the Nike Air Safari rather than elephant print.
Aesthetically, the design comes with a Air Trainer 1 sole (worn by the infamous Bo Jackson) and a Yeezy 2-esque sidewall. While the shoe is a trainer, it definitely is more of a lifestyle shoe with older technologies, which contrasts the up-to-date performance features of the Nike CJ3 Trainer worn by Calvin Johnson.
We’ll keep you updated with release info for the Nike Air Cruz. Let us know your thoughts on this new shoe in the comments below.
