Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver DeSean Jackson

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson shared some amazing custom cleats on Tuesday that he’s going to wear all season to honor the late Nipsey Hussle.

Jackson posted pictures of the cleats on his Instagram account, including the caption, “‘Lock us behind gates but can’t tame us.’ Used to be stay safe, now it’s stay dangerous.”

He also wrote he’ll rep Nipsey every game.



Following up to this, TMZ Sports spoke with Marcus Rivero of Soles By Sir, who created these custom cleats for Jackson. Rivero said Jackson specifically requested the designs and said they won’t be the last. He also confirmed that Jackson plans to wear the cleats and honor Nipsey every game this coming year.

As an aside, if Jackson does wear these cleats during games, he can expect a fine from the NFL. The league doesn’t allow custom cleats during games except for during its “My Cause, My Cleats” period.
