DeSean Jackson loves sneakers. He also loves to make plays on the field and for some reason, despite putting up a league-leading 20 yards per catch for 942 yards and five TDs, no one has noticed him much this year. That probably has to do with Washington playing below-average football at 3-9, which is WAY below where many of us thought they’d be this year.
Fortunately for Jackson, no one can forget about his sneaker collection, especially considering how it’s easily one of the best in the business. The 5-10 speedster has been styling his way through over 2,000 posts on the ‘gram (read that again). The dude is a pro athlete WITH OVER 2,000 INSTAGRAM POSTS. That doesn’t happen very often. Jackson is real. He’s willing to put himself out there. He’s authentic, which in turn makes his moments of ridiculous sneaker flaunting all the more memorable. He rocks what he likes.
And what he likes is undoubtedly Jordans. There are very few players in the NFL who are rocking the type of Jordan Brand heat that No. 11 is. From Military IVs to original IIs, he has all of the classics and even stays up to date on the new releases. Jackson recently copped the “Cement Grey” Jordan XIII that dropped in November.
On his 28th birthday, we’re honoring the man with 37 career receiving TDs by taking a look at his stash of kicks. Trust us: You’ll probably never have heat like this. That’s because Jackson’s flyer than any Eagle. Here are DeSean Jackson’s Best Sneakers on Instagram.
