Odell Beckham Jr.
is unquestionably one of the NFL
‘s largest and loudest personalities, so the Cleveland Browns
wide receiver’s signature Nike
line aims to encapsulate his charisma — the latest result of which is the Air Max 720 OBJ Slip
in “University Blue” and “Summit White.” A modified version of the Air Max 720 OBJ
that replaces laces with a technical buckle system, the shoes are big, bold and complex just like Odell himself.
Apart from its bulbous Air Max 720
cushioning unit, the key piece of the 720 OBJ Slip is its crisscrossing fit system. This uses a duo of fabric straps, fed through an anchor in the throat before being secured by a combination of suede eyestays and plastic snaps. The rest of the design is similar to the original Air Max 720 OBJ, calling upon a layered upper that mixes suedes, leathers, synthetics and mesh.
Both the “University Blue” and the “Summit White” offer a mostly monochromatic palette. “University Blue” proffers a full blue upper with black accents on fit systems, heel tabs and branded embellishments. “Summit White” puts forth white, bone and sail tones, embellished with small pops of volt green and sport blue. Each also adds signature Odell graphics on the tongue to lock in the look.
The Nike Air Max 720 OBJ Slip “University Blue” and “Summit White” are priced at $180 USD each, and will both release on Nike GB
come April 4.
