As we’ve seen in recent weeks with exclusive sneakers from former NFL star Andre Johnson and Orlando Magic players, it’s hard to beat being a member of Jordan Brand. Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is the latest player to support this sentiment, taking to social media to show off a set of personalized Air Jordan 1s.
Bryant’s set includes two exclusive Air Jordan 1 Highs in orange — a nod to his alma mater, Oklahoma State — and another in navy, silver and white to represent his NFL team. Each of the shoes features Bryant’s signature on their insoles along with his “Throw Up the X” logo on a woven label behind the tongue.
Zooming in on the shoe’s inner tags reveals that they are promo sneakers that were shipped directly to Nike’s Beaverton, Ore., headquarters — effectively ruling out the possibility of a wider release for these personalized pairs.

Bryant made sneaker headlines in November after claiming to own 3,000 Air Jordans, adding that Nike sends him as many as 50 different pairs every month.
