Wide receiver Terrelle Pryor is wearing custom-made 9/11 tribute cleats for today’s New York Jets home game against the Miami Dolphins.

The Air Jordan XI cleats were designed and produced by Jordan Custom Kicks, operated by aptly named Mike Jordan, of Ringwood, N.J. Jordan is a “footwear artist” and has painted cleats for a number of pro players, including another Jets’ receiver, Robby Anderson, TY Hilton of the Indianapolis Colts and Cameron Jordan of the New Orleans Saints.

He also customizes spikes for some Major League Baseball players.

Pryor, the former Jeannette and Ohio State star quarterback who morphed into a wideout in the pros, is in his first season with New York, his sixth NFL team.

“When Pryor came over to the Jets I contacted him to see if he wanted to collaborate this season and he was interested,” Jordan said. “So we talked a little this week and he wanted two pairs, one for the game and one for pregame. “He asked me to draw up some designs and 9/11 tribute was the first idea that came to me since we just had the anniversary.”

Pryor caught three passes for 49 yards, including a 20-yard reception, in last week’s 48-17 win over the Detroit Lions.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
