Former New York Giants wideout Victor Cruz has been enjoying his post NFL career. One of his latest projects is a new signature, dubbed the V.C.I that was created in collaboration with French designer Pierre Hardy. The “1996” model speaks to the year that Cruz “fell in love with football”.
The shoe features a colorblocked upper with camouflage paneling and gold-foil branding. A monochromatic black and grey scheme is seen on the “2006” edition, which represents the Cruz’s first season with the University of Massachusetts Minutemen. Completing the three-piece collection is the red, white and blue-coated “2012” version, which pays direct homage to the New York Giant’s team colors, as well as the year the team on won Super Bowl XLVI
The V.C.I. retails for $795 USD and are currently available via SSENSE Pierre Hardy boutiques in New York, Paris and Tokyo, as well as their webstore.
