Today we take a look at what is being called the Nike Air Cruz Memory Of Mike. Paying tribute to the late father of Victor Cruz, this version will definitely hold a special place in Victor Cruz’s heart.

The Nike Air Cruz Memory Of Mike is meant to honor the later father of Victor Cruz. Cruz has mentioned that his hard work, talent and willing to succeed was something that he learned his father, Mike Walker. Mike Walker played a major role in helping Victor Cruz be what he is today. He passed away in 2007 and to this day Victor Cruz is affected by the passing of his dad. The Memory of Mike version of the shoe will come in a black suede and leather upper accented by the Bright Crimson hits placed on the lining, speckling on the white midsole and Nike Swoosh on the side of the heel. Paying homage to his dad, the shoe will come with  “Memory of Mike” embroidered on the midfoot strap. Said to be January 16th for $145, let us know what you think about the latest colorway of the Nike Air Cruz.

You really can’t hate on a shoe that pays tribute to the passing of a loved one. With that being said, big ups to Victor Cruz for releasing a shoe that pays its respect to his late father.
