Nike will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Air Jordan XIII with their roster of NFL stars wearing personalized cleats this season that will work with players' respective team colors.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will be one of the players rocking some Jordans this season.
Jefferey won't be the only player on the field this weekend sporting J's when the Eagles take on the Washington Redskins as their star tight end, Jordan Reed, will also be rocking the Jordan Brand cleats.
Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant will have some as well. Others around the league include Golden Tate, Malik Hooker, Melvin Ingram, Thomas Davis, Michael Crabtree, Jamal Adams, Corey Coleman, Joe Haden, DeShone Kizer, Jalen Ramsey, and Earl Thomas.
You can get a glimpse at a white version of the shoes from a preseason game below as well.

Kevin Hart is one of the most well-known Philadelphia sports fans in the world.
He made a scene at the Super Bowl while showing support for the Eagles.
So it's no surprise when TMZ asked him about LeBron James and his 76ers, Hart lit up a bit, even going so far as to say he has already attempted to recruit him to Philly.
"I sent him $40. He didn't accept it," Hart said. "I really did try. I sent him 40 dollars and I said come to Philly."
"He said, 'kiss my ass!'"
"I don't think he's going anywhere," Hart added.
Probably not if $40 is the best we as a city have to offer.
The Philadelphia 76ers as a team, and Joel Embiid specifically, reminded the world last night that FS1's Colin Cowherd is quite often full of it when they won their 40th game of the season.
We wrote about this last night when Jojo poked fun at Cowherd for his preseason assertion that Sixers wouldn't sniff 40 wins. But today Cowherd held up his end of the preseason bet by rocking a No. 21 Sixers jersey during his The Herd show.
Cowherd's co-host Kristine Leahy posted video of the frequently wrong analyst admitting he'd lost and saying he'd own up to it, eventually.
"I'd love to have [Embiid] on this show anytime he wants," Cowherd said today. "I made a bet. I lost. I'm not going to welch."
But then he spoke about not being able to find a jersey that fit while Leahy was wearing one that would clearly fit him. They eventually found one and he put it on.
"They deserve love," Cowherd said.
Winning sure feels good. All kinds of winning.
