O’dell Beckham Jr. and the New York Giants had a huge match up and conference rivalry in yesterday’s game versus the Washington Redskins. During warm-ups, Beckham embraced his inner Kanye through custom ‘Red October’ Cleats crafted by none other than Kickasso himself.
The Nike Air Yeezy 2 ‘Red October’ is said to be OBJ’s favorite Nike sneaker according to Kickasso’s Instagram post of the customs. This comes as no surprise to us as the sneaker is as loud as his personality on and off the field. The cleat features a solid red upper with detailing on the lateral side and Swoosh. A Yeezy strap, tongue patch, and gold lace tips all matching the original are also present on the pre-game custom.
At game time, Beckham set aside the vibrant pre-game pair, as he always does, and picked up another custom just as unique. The second, also inspired by Mr. West, features a detailed, hand-painted design done by the same talented artist. The artwork on the cleat parallels the album artwork for Kanye’s third studio album, Graduation. Multiple “Kanye Bears” as well as eyeballs are painted above a pink to purple fading background. Both the Swoosh and Nike branding on the heel are inspired by the same eyeballs. Bright pink laces and a purple sock liner top off the one-of-a-kind custom.
Take a detailed look at both custom cleats below, as well as a 360 degree video of the ‘Graduation’ pair and let us know which of the two is your favorite!
