IRVING, Texas – What was known back in April became official Thursday when Jordan Brand officially announced Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has joined the Jumpman23 family.
Bryant has worn Jumpman23 cleats this season and will wear a pair of Air Jordan XIIs.
Jordan wore those sneakers in the 1997 NBA Finals while playing with a 103-degree temperature. He scored 38 points and the shoes became known as the Flu Game shoes.
Bryant has scored at least one touchdown in four games this season and is tied for second in the NFL in touchdowns with six, one behind Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker.
