Former Oklahoma State Cowboy and Detroit Lion Barry Sanders is getting a new shoe just for him — even after his playing career is over.
Barry had his own Nike in the mid 90s called the Nike Zoom Turf, which you can still buy today if you are lucky enough to find it.
Today, Sanders tweeted out that Nike has once again made a signature shoe for him.
I think these are so great and will have to try to get my hands on a pair.
Here is how Nike.com describes the shoe:
Designed to honor the “greatest season ever played,” the latest Air Trainer 2 pays homage to legendary running back Barry Sanders’ award-winning season in 1988. The shoe features orange and black nubuck, as a nod to his alma mater’s rich heritage. Aesthetically, safari appropriately ties together the black and orange colorway finished off with a black reflective swoosh. The gridiron was his kingdom – and for years, the pride of Stillwater reigned supreme.
