Larry Fitzgerald is the quintessential Nike Training athlete. As a professional athlete his regimen puts shoes like the Nike Zoom Huarache Trainer beyond anything you could imagine. Fitzgerald’s love for the game of football and his training efforts have taken him a long way from his days as a teenager working as ball boy for the Minnesota Vikings. As Aaron Cooper revealed, Nike Training has created this colorway to pay tribute to those days Larry spent on the sidelines dreaming of someday playing in the NFL himself. Not only is the colorway a tribute to the Vikings purple and gold, the texture on the uppers also mimics that of the texture of a football.
