Arizona Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt will honor the late Pat Tillman with a signature shoe from Reebok.
The grey and crimson item will be called JJ IV Valor, and it was partially designed by Marie Tillman, Pat Tillman's widow. The Cardinals and Watt declared the shoe on the group's website.
"Pat Tillman lived his entire life in support of a purpose larger than himself. That is his true heritage.
"It has been an absolute privilege to operate with Pat's widow, Marie Tillman, and CEO of the Pat Tillman Foundation, Dan Futrell, to ensure that this shoe properly and appropriately represents and honors Pat in a way that he would be pleased with. 100 percent of my personal proceeds from this shoe will proceed right to the Pat Tillman Foundation to help finance the next generation of Tillman Scholars and ensure that Pat's heritage continues on."
As stated by the team's website, the shoe may feature PT40 inscriptions, a Pat Tillman Foundation sock lining and a commemorative hangtag.
"JJ exemplifies our values of scholarship, support, humble direction and impact," explained Dan Futrell, CEO of the Pat Tillman Foundation. "At JJ, we see someone who shares Pat's enthusiasm for living, his tenacity on the football field and away through his deep investment in building a difference in his area and also on a global scale. We're thankful to partner with him and Reebok with this release."
The shoe will probably come out Friday in unisex sizes. The purchase price tag for your shoe is $99.99. Reebok will donate $10 to the Pat Tillman Foundation for each shoe offered through Aug. 31.
