The Air Trainer Cruz has gone pink for a cause. The signature shoe of New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is donning the blushed pigment to support the fight against breast cancer. The charitable Nike release features an all-suede tonal ‘Pink Fire’ upper and matching outsole, with a clean white midsole for contrast. Just 50 pairs of this special edition colourway have been produced, each embroidered with ‘One of Fifty’ beneath the signature strap.
Produced in collaboration with Sneaker Room, the 50 pairs are currently up for auction through the New Jersey boutique with a bidding starting at $1000 USD. Alternatively, you can save yourself the nail-biting bidding war and cop a pair outright for $2000 USD. It’s a whole lot of moolah, but 100 percent of the proceeds are being donated to local breast cancer treatment in Jersey.
Sizes range from US6 to US15, but according to the Super Bowl champ, just 17 pairs are left. Contact Sneaker Room ASAP to get your hands on a pair of the ultra-rare kicks.
