Heading into this brand new NFL season for 2019-2020, Odell Beckham has balling hard in some Nike made cleats inspired by shoes in his sneaker closet.
Prior to the start of the new 2019-2020 NFL season, Odell Beckham confirmed that he linked up with Nike to make him some special cleats for game time. Not only will he be wearing these cleats made by Nike for his first season as a Cleveland Brown, but Odell will only ever be playing football in these cleats throughout the entirety of this new 2019-2020 NFL game season. So far this season, Odell has stuck to that promise.
Now, we know what you are thinking. Well, we do not know what you are thinking because we are not mind readers, but we have a pretty good guess as to what is on your mind right this second. You may be asking yourself “What does any of this have to do with sneakers? This is still a sneaker website, right?” You are right to ask that question. Even with the Nike seal of approval, cleats are in no, way, shape or form the same as sneakers. However, these cleats in particular were crafted and inspired by the sneakers in Odell’s very own closet.
Odell Beckham is a self-professed sneakerhead and when Nike designer Erin Cochrane approached him about their deal, they wanted to take a close look at some of Odell’s favorite Nike designs. Cochrane explains further in that previous Sole Collector link, but essentially, Nike looked at these designs when modelling Nike Vapor Untouchable Pro 3 OBJ Uptempo cleat, for example, and did so with shoes like Kanye West’s Nike Air Yeezy in mind.
To this day, so far into the season, Odell continues to ball out on the field in Nike cleats. Expect him to keep it that way till the season is over.
