New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is nothing if not an enigma. Known for his jaw-dropping athleticism and one-handed catches on the field — and his bombastic outbursts/whimsical fashion off of it — OBJ is one of the most polarizing players in the NFL. As a long-time Nike athlete, he’s had signature shoes before — but they’ve been of the off-field variety as he worked with the Swoosh on a special SF-AF1 Mid in 2017. Now his on-field performance footwear is taking the spotlight for the first time, as a special “OBJ” Nike Vapor Untouchable Shark 3 cleat just dropped in both men’s and grade school sizes.

The design itself is simple — an Air More Uptempo-inspired white leather low-top with a Flyknit sock collar and bright crimson accents on the toebox and outsole — but the embellishments are what makes it special. A numbered tag appears on the heel, and special Beckham hits replace the usual “AIR” branding on the sides. OBJ appears on the lateral side, with the J transitioning into a Swoosh that wraps around the heel before finishing on the medial side next to Beckham’s #13, for a look reminiscent of the swapped letters utilized on Supreme‘s special Uptempos. An agressively-styled carbon fiber midsole plate then completes the sleek look. The men’s pair is sold out, but if your kids need some new football footwear — or you’re just a big Odell fan — the grade-school size cleats are available now at Nike.com for $48 USD.
