J.J. Watt may be in the offseason, but the Texans defensive end is staying busy.
The latter launch wasn’t lost on one young college student. In a tweet to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, @gavin_winters wrote, “(I) wish I wasn’t a broke college kid or else I would definitely be getting me some,” in reference to Watt’s new shoe line. “Probably wouldn't fall apart like NIKE’s.”

And just like that, Winters was blessed with a new pair of the $99 shoes.
According to CBS Sports, the shoe is “inspired by the veteran’s no-nonsense attitude on the field and in the gym.” Its signature training features, like Liquidfoam cushioning and Leno weave ventilation, “represent the work that went into Watt’s journey back to the gridiron.”
