On the field, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts broke out his Jordan XI Concord cleats and scored three touchdowns in Philadelphia’s 38-7 thrashing of the New York Giants. The MVP candidate also wore the cleats in Week 12 in a win over the Green Bay Packers as he continues to establish himself as elite on and off the field.
49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel was not to be outdone. He wowed fans with his dazzling cleats, inspired by the Cactus Plant Flea Market and Swarovski Nike Dunk collaboration called “Pure Platinum.” Kota Kustoms revealed it took three people 48 hours to design the shoes, which feature 1,000 crystals.
His teammate George Kittle also joined in on the fun and rocked a pair of custom Air Jordan 1-inspired cleats with his team colors in fun prints designed by The Shoe Surgeon.
There was clearly some heat on the field. Now let’s count down the best off-the-field looks.
Here’s the NFL divisional round drip check:
5. Marquez Valdes-Scantling — Kansas City Chiefs
Former drip check winner Marquez Valdes-Scantling returns to the list with this colorful outfit. The wide receiver wore a red and black leather motorcycle jacket from INTL Collective and matched it with a pair of checkerboard pants. The accessories, a Prada bucket hat and a pair of Travis Scott Air Jordan 1s with mismatched laces, elevated the look.
4. Saquon Barkley — New York Giants
Saquon Barkley showed up to his game in head-to-toe Bottega Veneta. Stylist Joshua McPhearson curated a look that featured a black wool jacket with white trousers and textured boots. Louis Vuitton shades kept the running back cool and focused.
3. DeVonta Smith — Philadelphia Eagles
DeVonta Smith looks dapper pretty much every single week. Some of his suit choices stand out more than others, like this bold burnt orange one, and his divisional round selection definitely made the list. He wore a red and black striped suit with a red sash for that special sauce.
2. Frank Clark — Kansas City Chiefs
Frank Clark looked fresh in this purple ensemble. He wore a Louis Vuitton varsity jacket from Virgil Abloh’s last collection. The yellow and green accents complemented his textured purple pants from Tokyo-based repurposing company Proleta Re Art. He finished off the look with a pair of Timberland boots with purple laces.
1. Deebo Samuel – San Francisco 49ers
Not only did Deebo Samuel impress on the gridiron, he made a statement before he even stepped on it. The wide receiver showed up to his divisional round game looking fierce in a black Gucci suit. Stylist Vick Michel topped it off with black gloves and boots.
It was a true statement look that had to take the top spot.
