Merry Boxing Day to Odell Beckham Jr. and Odell Beckham Jr. only, whose Grinch-inspired Nike cleats have sparked joy in my usually dormant heart. The Cleveland Browns wide receiver sported the furry festive footwear during pre-game warmups at FirstEnergy Stadium against the Baltimore Ravens over the weekend, and I haven’t stopped thinking about them since.
I mean, seriously, look at them and tell me your heart doesn’t also explode into a million tiny Grinchy pieces.
The one-of-a-kind Christmas edition of the Nike Vapor Untouchable Pro 3 OBJ Uptempo Cleats features candy-cane detailing THAT LIGHTS UP, Grinch’s trademark fur and a tiny Grinch heart on the heel, among other trademark Grinchy pieces.
I absolutely have no idea about football, let alone American football, nor do I have any intention to ever use cleats in any sporting context, but, in spite of this, I want these Grinchy cleats right this very second, and I’m willing to throw all of my monies in their direction. I think that’s testament to how truly magical these pieces of art are.
I want them for Sunday bottomless brunch. Or church. Or bed.
I’d wear them humbly, and love them endlessly.
Odell, I’ll DM you my postal address. Thank you sincerely in advance.
