Eastbay Memory Lane: Randy Moss

Eastbay Memory Lane: Randy Moss

After watching Randy Moss’s incredible touchdown catch Sunday against the Jets, I dug into the Eastbay Archive and grabbed the Moss cover from over 10 years ago. This particular catalog hit in August of 2000 with the headline reading “The Next BIG THING Is Here” with Moss playing for the Vikings.

With his score, Moss joined just three others in NFL History with 150 career TDs. The other three players are Jerry Rice with 208, Emmitt Smith with 175 and his Jets’ opponent LaDainian Tomlinson with 153.

Once a Randy Moss signature sneaker, the Jordan Super Freak has returned with the same Minnesota appropriate color blocking, with a slight twist. The colorway obviously ties into the early days of Moss’ career spent with the Minnesota Vikings, but even the style cues are evidence of its turn-of-the-century origins. Think of other silhouettes that also released around the end of the 90’s and early 2000’s, like the Nike Air 3,  or a similar style with a zipper such as the Nike Air Flightposite II, and you can easily see the influences from the time period. The minor changes include what once read Eighty4 on the tongue and midsole, has now been exchanged to the number synonymous with Michael Jordan himself, Twenty 3.

Randy Moss and Team Jordan may have gone separate ways, but now you can get your hands on the best of their past relationship.
