Lamar Jackson Wore These Nike Football Cleats During His Historic NFL MVP Season

Critics said Lamar Jackson should have changed positions and become a wide receiver before his pro football career started. The former college star, a Heisman Trophy winner, was selected behind four quarterbacks with the final pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Tonight, Jackson defied his detractors and was named NFL Most Valuable Player — unanimously. The leader of the Baltimore Ravens is just the second player to win the award unanimously, with the other being six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady in 2010.

During his astounding season, Jackson laced up the Nike Vapor Untouchable Pro 3 cleat. The model is built with a one-piece knit bootie construction for a socklike fit and a carbon-fiber plate for the lightweight strength needed to perform on the gridiron.

After the regular season, the MVP quarterback wore another style during the NFL Pro Bowl: the Nike Vapor Edge Pro 360 Premium. The cleats are scheduled to drop tomorrow on Nike.com.

This season was a historic one for Jackson. He is the only quarterback in the history of the league to throw for more than 3,000 yards and rush for more than 1,000 in the same season, and he is also the only player to accumulate more than 1,000 rushing yards while throwing more than 30 touchdowns in the same season.
