Las Vegas Raiders Running Back, Josh Jacobs, Pays Tribute to Virgil Abloh, With Custom Game Cleats

Yesterday, the Las Vegas Raiders took on the Washington Football Team, where they fell at home, 17-15. This loss comes a week after an impressive win over the Dallas Cowboys, on Thanksgiving. The Raiders started the season at 5-2, but are now, 6-6, after the firing of Head Coach Jon Gruden, and releasing Wide Receiver, Henry Ruggs.

Raiders Running Back, Josh Jacobs, did honor the late Virgil Abloh, in the game, though. Jacobs received a custom pair of yellow cleats, which read “RIP Virgil,” and “Off-White,” Virgil’s fashion label.

In addition to the yellow cleats, Jacobs also scored a blue pair, which featured Abloh’s face on them, and read “Virgil was here.” The Louis Vuitton logo was also added, as Abloh was a creative director there, since 2018. Abloh passed away on November 28, after a 2-year battle with a rare form of cancer, that he dealt with privately.

The NFL allowed players to wear custom cleats such as this, to raise money for various causes, in Week 13 of the season. Jacobs went on to have 13 rushes, for 52 yards. Luke Dangler was who designed these cleats, for Jacobs
