12/30/15 O&A NYC With WaleStylez- Fashion: Nike Air Cruz- Big Blue Preview

By Adewale Adekanbi Jr. 


New York Giants Wide Receiver Victor Cruz is out but far from down. O&A NYC Co-Founder Adewale Adekanbi (aka WaleStylez) caught up with the “on the mend” Cruz at FootAction on 34th Street. Cruz was there to promote the upcoming release of his debut sneaker the Nike Air Cruz.


No surprise but another colorway of the upcoming Nike Air Cruz has surfaced and we assume it is a second nod to the New York Giants. Big Blue gets the tonal treatment; this pair in all-blue suede and woven leather, the latter different from the raised “pyramids” seen on the previously leaked colorways. This version also lacks visible Swoosh branding on its lateral side. Although there is no official release date for Victor Cruz’s first signature model yet, we anticipate the shoe will release in early February. The debut sneaker will be priced at $150.
