For this week’s episode of Complex’s Sneaker Shopping, host Joe La Puma was joined by Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield at the Nike SNKRS pop-up space in Atlanta during Super Bowl weekend.
Mayfield discussed his love for the Converse Chuck Taylor, his teammate Jarvis Landry being an avid sneakerhead, the versatility of Virgil Abloh’s Off-White x Nike sneakers, being welcomed to the city of Cleveland with free pairs of limited Nike LeBron sneakers, and more.
“It was definitely a welcome to the city. I loved it. I didn’t know whether I could put them on and wear them around, or if I would get judged for it. So, I was a little hesitant at first, but it was a good gift,” he explained. “They’re still on ice. I’m waiting to break them out.”
The star quarterback also discussed encouragement he’s received from hometown hero LeBron James. “Obviously, he’s arguably one of the greatest of all time, so having that support from him is unbelievable.”
For the full interview and a look at all of the pairs that Mayfield walked away with, check out the full episode in the video player above.
