Victor Cruz is having what looks like the best-worst-week we’ve seen a star athlete have for a while.
Cruz debuted his hotly anticipated Nike signature sneaker on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Monday, wearing the Haystack colorway. The sneaker comes in four colors and takes cues from vintage Nike Football styles. The sneakers will debut over the next few months, with the first issue hitting stores Nov. 20.
Despite injury sitting him out the past two seasons, the Giants wide receiver has a bit of a following in fashion and was even an ambassador for the first New York Fashion Week: Men’s this summer.
Cruz didn’t get to ride his new-sneaker wave too long however. His fiancé, Elaina Watley, reportedly sent a group text to all his “side women” letting them know she knows of their existence and introducing them to each other.
That’s one way to bring a guy back down to earth.
