Athlete Spotlight: Tramon Williams

As an integral part of the team that brought the Lombardi trophy back to Green Bay, the past year has been a whirlwind of excitement for World Champion Cornerback, Tramon Williams. It’s no secret that Williams’ journey to success was slow, bumpy and nothing short of remarkable. Despite being one of the most respected, hard-working and athletic players on the field, his talents were overlooked countless times, forcing him to walk on in college and not be selected in the NFL draft. For most players, this would have been the end of the line, but for Williams, these obstacles only gave him more drive to succeed, and it’s easy to see that his hard work and persistence has paid off.

So, what does a man like Tramon Williams do in his off-time? When he’s not helping out with charity events or spending time with his wife and son, Williams can be found watching movies or playing video games (most notably Transformers and Call of Duty). And while many have witnessed his talents and unique style on the field, they might be surprised to know that Williams has an amazing eye for style off the field, too. (His shoe collection takes up most of his wife’s closet space!) He describes his style as semi-preppy and relaxed but totally unique. He’s a huge fan of brands like LRG, Ecko Unltd., Timberland, Enyce, Jordan, New Era and Eastbay, of course. He bought his first pair of shoes from Eastbay at age 12, and his first casual clothing purchase came soon after.
