BUFFALO, N.Y. — Bills safety Jordan Poyer isn’t just great at defending against opposing teams, he’s got an eye for fashion too, and he now has a line of sneakers available.
At his release party at the Cellar on Elmwood, Poyer signed autographs for fans who stopped by.
Some of his teammates also came to grab a pair, including Von Miller, Dion Dawkins and Jordan Phillips.
"Jordan dedicates as much energy to giving back as he does to playing at the highest level in the NFL," a press release read. "He and Alma Mater founder Eric Sarin are from Astoria, Oregon. A small town steeped in the values of community, hard work, simplicity, and integrity. These values hold true in the way Jordan, his brand, and his foundation operate. Never have these values been more important to all of us and are at the core of the Alma Mater brand."
The JP 21 is a partnership between the star safety and his brand, Alma Mater. It will retail for $258, and is a "blend of old-world craftsmanship" that features soft leather and plush nubuck. The inside of the sneaker has a recycled cork insole surrounded by a leather lining.
Poyer already has his eyes on his next project - a golf shoe. And they already have a prototype made.
