The third colorway of Victor Cruz’s Nike Air Trainer Cruz is scheduled to release this weekend. This colorway may not be the easiest to match up because of the orange inner liner, but there’s no doubt that it’s the most meaningful for Cruz.
Dubbed the Memory of Mike colorway, this iteration of the Nike Air Trainer Cruz pays tribute to Victor Cruz’s late father Mike who passed away in 2007. Victor references his father as the person who instilled ideas of hard work and perseverance in his life and career. This colorway of the Air Trainer Cruz features a Black premium leather and suede upper with Bright Crimson and White accents. The inside of the midfoot strap reads “In Memory Of Mike” for his father in True Yellow and the number 9, Victor’s high school number, has been added on the heel strap.
You can find the Nike Air Trainer Cruz In Memory Of Mike at select Nike retailers on January 16th for $145.
Another clean colorway of the Air Trainer Cruz but better than the colorway is the theme/message behind the shoe. Great way for Victor to honor his dad with his first ever signature shoe.
