JJ Watt has only been in the NFL for two seasons, but the reigning Defensive Player of the Year is already one of the most popular players in the league. He’s even getting his own shoe.
There has already been a huge response from fans clamoring to get a pair of the kicks. As the Houston Chronicle pointed out, even actress Danielle Fishel aka Topanga Lawrence wants a pair:
@daniellefishel I’ll be sure to send you a pair

Between wearing a Craig Biggio throwback jersey and posing with Yao Ming, Watt has endeared himself to Houston fans. He is great at fan relations and proposed to a young girl who wanted to marry him. As beloved as he is in the city, I have no doubt the shoes will be a hot item.
