New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft caught up with President Donald Trump on Sunday. The friends spent some quality time together aboard Air Force One, and Kraft couldn’t have picked a better pair of shoes for the occasion.
The NFL team owner wore a pair of Nike Air Force 1 Ultraforce Low Patriots sneakers, which were released in November 2016. The shoes feature a black premium leather upper with silver patent-leather accents on the Swoosh and heel. The most striking detail is found at the tongue, which features a retro Patriots logo that was retired in the early ’90s.
According to the Boston Globe, Kraft accompanied Trump and others to Florida’s Palm Beach International Airport and was later seen following the president into the White House Sunday evening.
Ahead of the Super Bowl in February, Kraft detailed his friendship with the president, explaining that Trump was one of a handful of people who supported him after the death of his wife, Myra.
“He called me once a week for the whole year, the most depressing year of my life when I was down and out. He called me every week to see how I was doing, invited me to things, tried to lift my spirits. He was one of five or six people that were like that. I remember that,” Kraft said.
The Nike Air Force 1 Ultraforce Low sneakers worn by Kraft are sold out in stores but can be found on eBay with prices starting at $199.99.
