The NFL playoffs are here, and although basketball is not involved, Jordan Brand kicks will be. JB athletes Michael Crabtree and Earl Thomas of the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, will be rocking custom Air Jordan VI Retro cleats on the field.
Says Jordan Brand:
After returning from an Achilles injury in November, Crabtree made an impressive return to the postseason last week, catching eight passes for 125 yards. This week, Crabtree will take the field in a low-cut pair of the retro cleat with a black/white upper and a number 15 on the heel. The cleat plate features a solid metallic gold with gym red cleats.
In his postseason debut, defensive back Earl Thomas will lace up the custom retro cleat in the AJ VI's more traditional mid-cut, featuring a white embroidered 29 on the black/white upper. Look for the green cleat plate with isolated navy cleats.

Jordan Brand will be opening its first standalone store in NYC this year.
