The Nike Air Trainer Cruz “Rush Blue” Gets A Release Date

Nike Air Trainer Cruz Rush Blue detailed look

If you’re a sneakerhead that’s fond of blue suede shoes, there’s more than one upcoming release that will have you doing salsa moves like one of our favorite New York Giants wide receivers. Following last week’s reveal of the Mita x ASICS Gel Lyte V “Trico,” there’s another eye-catching blue sneaker set to arrive next month. The Nike Air Trainer Cruz “Rush Blue” is the next colorway of Victor Cruz’s first signature sneaker up for grabs.

The Nike Air Trainer Cruz has already dropped in several understated colorways, including “Haystack” and “Wolf Grey.” There’s nothing subtle, however, about the upcoming “Rush Blue” iteration. The most vibrant take on the NFL star’s Nike silhouette features an entirely blue color code, including a suede toe box, tongue, and ankle collar. The shoe also sport tonal straps on the forefoot and heel. When opened, the forefoot strap reveals the words “Dance to Greatness” written in bright red. The Nike trainer also gets a touch of silver detailing around the eyelets.

Fans of Victor Cruz and the New York Giants will be especially taken with the Nike Air Trainer “Rush Blue.” You can score a pair at select Nike retailers worldwide on February 10.
