According to reports, Harrison, who was the first receiver picked up in this year’s draft, will most likely be wearing New Balance’s Prodigy cleat, which is a low-top shoe designed for skill players in gold and white. The Fortress design, which is made of black and gold, is intended for players who engage in the game’s most intense battles.

“Our first conversations about stepping onto the gridiron kicked off in 2020,” New Balance stated on their website. “The goal — making the best-fitting, most comfortable cleat in the game — was simple. Getting there was not.

“We focused on an intelligent approach to product creation that combined our history of best-in-class craftsmanship with cutting-edge innovation. The prototype designs were wear-tested in our Sports Research Lab by players at every level, including Chase Young and Will Anderson Jr. These insights proved vital throughout the process. The game deserves better. We won’t settle for anything less than setting a new standard.”

Harrison, the promising ambassador for New Balance, has already received praise from Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray.

“I think that takes us to another level,” Murray said, via ESPN. “When you have a guy out there capable of winning one-on-ones, it changes the game. Obviously, he’s got to go out and prove it, and he knows that. We all know it. But as far as manipulating coverage and stuff like that, having a guy out there who can do that is invaluable. Even when he’s not open, he’s open. I’m excited to build that chemistry with him, and when he does what he does, I fully expect our offense to be top of the league.”
