Barry Sanders had a legendary NFL career, and most fans would say that it ended far too soon. He has since been inducted into the college and professional football hall of fames as well as being named one of the top 10 best NFL players all of time.
That is what averaging 1,500 rushing yards throughout your career will do for you. With all that being said, all of us still wish Barry could have played longer. But you can’t be mad at him for walking away while he was still young and healthy. His football legacy will live forever, and so will the shoes he ran in.
The Nike Air Zoom Turf was inspired by shoes Sanders wore in the 1996 season and are one of the most popular football trainers ever. This particular colorway will have you feeling like Barry back in ‘96 with the white, metallic silver, black and photo blue scheme — very consistent with the Detroit Lions uniform colors.
You may not be as quick as him, but you can at least look just as fresh breaking these out this summer. With players starting to report for OTAs and the season rapidly approaching, these classic football kicks will have you ready to hit the gridiron or at least be ready to watch some football when the time comes.
