Now that Nike’s got a good grip on the NFL is it possible we’ll see them outfitting various players with signature sneakers? Could such a move potentially make its way into the casual/lifestyle realm the same way that the LeBron, Kobe, and Durant lines have? If that does indeed happen you might be looking at one of the first shots to be fired, as New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis recently popped up in this never before seen Nike sneaker. The Trainer-inspired design featured a thick mid-foot strap reminiscent of the original Air Yeezy with a Swoosh placed on the heel like the Zoom Huarache TR Mids of 2010, so perhaps we’ll see a turf-ready model when Revis and the Jets take the field again later this year. We’ll keep you updated on more information of this potential signature sneaker (maybe the Nike Zoom Revis? Nike Trainer Revis?) and let us know what you think.
Thanks to Joe for the heads up!

Look like knockoff Yeezys floatin around with that strap on em. Not feelin it at all. Also, what up with the dude rockin the cav 4's neck? Lookin weird.
Revis is cool in my book. But I hope my mans Chris Johnson CJ2K gets his own shoe in the next year or 2... It'd be sick I guarantee it
I guess the Performance Yeezy 1's? I don't know. NikeId? I'd cop. I want to see detailed pics and more colorways first tho.
