The NFL season is so close we can feel it. The teams are determining their final roster in training camp this month before the start of the regular season in September.
One player who doesn’t have to worry about his place is Tyrann Mathieu. The veteran safety signed a three-year, $33 million contract with the New Orleans Saints in May. Recently, fans got their first look at Mathieu in black and gold, and it didn’t disappoint.
The 3x All-Pro player wore a Saints uniform for the first time and opted to wear Air Jordan 1 sneakers during the NFL photo shoot. The exact kicks that Mathieu wears are the Air Jordan 1 Mid “Patent Black White Gold”.
The classic basketball shoes feature a White upper with Black and Gold accents, Gold Nike Swoosh logo, White midsole and Black sole. They were released on January 22, 2019 for $120. Unfortunately for fans, the average resale price is now $292, according to StockX.
