Unfortunitely as you may or may not know, Victor Cruz's year on the Football field is over, due to a season-ending surgery to repair an injured calf muscle, but his signature sneaker run with Nike is just beginning. Cruz and Nike have teamed up to create the Nike Air Trainer Cruz, a new lifestyle trainer that utilizes some vintage design cues from Nike's timeless Air Trainer series. The combination of classic styling from Nike's Air Trainer series, and Cruz's off-field fashion sense, is where this new trainer adds some extra flare, and really helps to make it something new and special. Nike turned to a fan favorite for the first color way of the Air Cruz, the classic Wheat, or Haystack as they're calling it this time around, which we've seen used on some of our favorite Air Max and Air Force 1 models.
The "Haystack" Air Cruz released this past Friday, November 20th at select retailers with a retail price of $150 USD. Will very limited quantities, you can all but bet that the Air Cruz has sold out at most retailers, but don't lose hope, this isn't the last we've seen of the Nike Air Trainer Cruz, more color ways are slated for future release. Take a look at some pictures of the Air Cruz and let me know what you think of the brand new Air Cruz.
