Victor Cruz's days on the gridiron may have come to a close, but the former New York Giants wide receiver is still making a splash in the sneaker space with projects like his Air Force 1s. Cruz has teased a handful of colorways throughout the year, and now the once-exclusives are popping up at retailers with little warning.
When Cruz previewed the white leather colorway at the top of the year, it was touted as a friends and family exclusive and limited to just 50 pairs, but now the pair is getting an actual release along with a tan suede style. Each pair features a customized three-piece strap adorned with details like Cruz's former jersey number, while "VIC" lettering is coupled with a Swoosh on the tongue.
Select retailers including Foot Locker and Extra Butter are stocking the Victor Cruz x Nike Air Force 1 Mid CMFT QS now for $175 each.
UPDATE (11/15): After slowly trickling into select stores over the past few weeks, Victor Cruz's Nike Air Force 1 Mids are getting an official Nike SNKRS release. Both the white leather and vachetta tan suede colorways will be available starting on Wednesday, Nov. 21 at 10 a.m. for $175 each. Each is complimented with metallic gold accents and three hanging leather straps that feature their own specific logos related to the former New York Giants wide receiver.
