Last week, Victor Cruz premiered a new colorway of his first signature shoe, the Nike Air Trainer Cruz, at KITH SoHo. The Giants wide receiver made an in-store appearance to sign a few early release pairs of his shoe in the Light Bone hue. The store was full with eager fans who had landed an opportunity to grab the shoe which makes it's general release tomorrow, November 18th. With this exclusive release, limited edition t-shirts inspired by the shoe design were sold as well. Cruz was accompanied by KITH owner and designer, Ronnie Fieg, who has released a few sought-after shoes this year and recently shared details of the KITH Miami opening.
Renown for his creative store designs, Fieg's KITH SoHo store (aptly titled KITH Treats) not only holds some of the most coveted Nike releases on the market but also has a fully-stocked cereal bar for hungry shoppers.
Victor Cruz’s signature lifestyle trainer goes clean and classy with a new “Light Bone” colorway. The premium signature model from Cruz blends retro trainer style with a luxurious upper arrives featuring a tonal off-white suede construction with woven paneling wrapping the heel. The only variation you’ll find from the Light Bone hue on the entire shoe are the lace tips, which come in a shade of blue that pays homage to Cruz’s New York Giants squad.

The Air Trainer Cruz “Light Bone” retails for $150 USD and drops this Friday, November 18th on Nike SNKRS and at select Nike Sportswear suppliers.
