Editor’s Notes: Odell Beckham Jr. has had a hand in designing Nike sneakers in the past, but this collaborative Air Max 720 is without doubt his wildest yet. It features a multitude of colors that reflect the NFL star’s penchant for making a statement with his fashion choices. The sneaker, which was pre-released in highly limited quantities in Berlin last week, is set to drop on June 21 for $200 at Nike and select retailers.
“A lot of my people hit me up early when they saw me with them on: Sterling Shepard, Saquon [Barkley]. Especially now that they’ve seen the pictures, they really hit me for them,” says Beckham Jr. “This was like a dream of mine growing up. It’s definitely special for me.”
Beckham Jr. reveals that Nike wanted to do something with its new Air Max 720 and that together they took more of an old-school look and approach. “The cork inside is kind of like a LeBron cork,” says OBJ. “We also have the hieroglyphics writing there, which is big on all my cleats, and stuff like that.”
Considering how colorful the sneaker is, one would be excused for needing help with how to style the kicks. Beckham Jr. says, “It’s definitely a pool party. Finding some nice little shorts or whatever. If you’ve been working out, you can go with your shirt off. It’s the pool party vibe.”
Touching on the other sneakers in his rotation, the NFL star revealed he usually shops at Flight Club or Round Two in Los Angeles. “Travis Scott, all the Fear of Gods, always keep a pair of Forces,” he says. “Whatever they got out right now, I usually try to get it early.”
Check out the kicks above and stay tuned for a list of retailers carrying the Nike Air Max 720 OBJ on June 21.
