Odell Beckham Jr’s Cleats Are Inspired by Classic Air Jordans

Odell Beckham Jr. made his highly anticipated return to New York yesterday in style with Air Jordan-inspired Nike cleats on the field.

For the wide receiver’s pre-game warm-up ahead of taking on the Jets, the Cleveland Browns wide receiver laced up a special rendition of the Nike Vapor Untouchable Pro 3 OBJ Uptempo cleat inspired by a friends-and-family colorway: the “Fresh Prince” Air Jordan 5. The special shoe was created for actor Will Smith in celebration of his 50th birthday and is reselling for over $2,500 on StockX.

As soon as the game tipped off, Beckham Jr. swapped his aforementioned footwear with another limited-edition cleat, this time, using the coveted “Shattered Backboard” Air Jordan 1 as the inspiration. Thanks to sports photographer @geminikeez on Instagram, the unreleased kicks feature “OBJ” embroidery that wraps around the entire mid-cut silhouette, be which is dressed in a white, black, and orange color scheme.

According to Nike, the cleats will remain exclusive to Beckham Jr. and will not be released to the public.
