From suiting up at Oklahoma to leading the Philadelphia Eagles into Super Bowl 52, Jalen Hurts has dominated the gridiron for years with Jordan Brand cleats. Now the recent Pro Bowler and Fresh Prince of Philly will be doing so officially as a Jordan Brand athlete.
Signing with the Beaverton brand in the midst of August, the 25-year-old played every single one of the team’s 18 games last season in Jordan branded cleats, transitioning everything from the Air Jordan 1 to the Air Jordan 12 to the gridiron. Revealing his new partnership with an announcement video voiced by Travis Scott, Hurts becomes the third Jordan-sponsored quarterback in the NFL alongside Dallas Cowboys head honcho Dak Prescott and Carolina Panthers rookie Bryce Young.
As a rookie, Hurts dawned Under Armor exclusively without holding an official partnership. In 2021, the signal-caller became Eastbay’s first brand ambassador before officially closing its doors in December 2022, allowing Hurts full autonomy with his kicks on game day for the 2022-2023 season. Known for swapping out of silhouettes multiple times within a game just like NBA players, Hurts will serve as one of the brand’s premier ambassadors for the future while the banner simultaneously extends models like the Air Jordan 1 Mid and Low with cleats for the upcoming football season.
