Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson will be honoring Nipsey Hussle throughout the entire season with custom Nipsey Hussle cleats. The cleats show Nip’s face as well as some of his lyrics. The shoes were first seen during the pre-game warmups before the Eagles’ Week 1 victory, they read “Rest In Paradise” and “You’ve got to have faith in what you’re doing and not take no for an answer.”
Jackson will be auctioning off the custom cleats as the season goes on, with the money directly going to Nip’s kids. The football player grew up in the same neighborhood as Nipsey, so it’s a great touch from the Eagles’ receiver.
DeSean Jackson will wear custom Nipsey Hussle cleats every game during warmups, and auction them off. Proceeds will go to Nipsey’s kids, Kross and Emani.

Jackson previously shared photos of different cleats that paid homage to Nipsey after his passing, so we might see those in the near future.
