Victor Cruz’s signature shoe releases in Light Bone 11/18
On the football field, Giant’s wide receiver Victor Cruz is known for his agility, speed and power. His reputation and admiration for the sneaker culture made for the perfect Nike collaboration in the form of the Nike Air Cruz. Originally released in 2015, the Air Cruz debuted in a variation of eye-catching colors including Haystack, Wolf Grey, Black/Crimson, and Rush Blue. At the time, Cruz was undergoing the last of his rehab treatment after a previous injury in 2014 left him unable to play.
The lifestyle sneaker’s unique design is a combination of Bo Jackson’s timeless silhouette and a futuristic adaptation of today’s sneaker. The suede upper features a Velcro midstrap with matching decorative ankle strap, and intricate woven heel pattern, which sits on top a clean Air midsole. “Dance to Greatness” is written on the inside of the midfoot strap, while the inner tongue has the number “3,” in honor of his father’s firefighter ladder. Other details include a blue Nike logo and matching aglet, which pay homage to the New York Giants and Cruz’s personal signature, inscribed into the ankle strap. The new monochromatic bone white colorway establishes a luxurious, easy to pair vibe.
The shoe will be available 11/18. Shop the look at DTLR
