Cam Newton’s known as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, but he’s also the fashion icon of the league. His latest signature sneakers prove that, with a hometown twist.
The newest shoe in his signature C1N collection is a lifestyle sneaker that pays homage to the city of Atlanta, where he was born and raised. They’re appropriately named Hometown.
Under Armour released a video in which Newton explains the impact Atlanta has had on him:
Eli is a fine quarterback. He’s won two Super Bowls, one against an 18-0 Patriots team in a game nobody expected the Giants to win. But we know him best for the funny faces he makes during games.
LeBron James is going to go down as one of the best basketball players to ever play the game. Some people will tell you that he already is. We’re not here to debate that though.
One thing nobody can debate is that he is one of the greatest athletes to walk the planet. In that sense, he and the youngest Manning are very different.
Manning’s not throwing down a hammer like this, or making a play close to being nearly as athletic. Which is fine.
James is a monster athlete who most people on the planet could never envision being like. Manning is not. They both put up performances that can go underappreciated because more is expected out of them for being better than the average player in their respective sports.
Based on that, Eli Manning and LeBron James are similar. But that’s it.
