BATON ROUGE – Former LSU Tiger Odell Beckham, Jr., didn't forget his roots Thursday – surprising his former squad with pairs of his new shoe, the Special Field Air Force-1 Mid “OBJ.”

The show goes on sale Black Friday and retails for about $160.

The shoe is hard to miss – bold yellow.

“The color, I couldn’t take my eyes off this color because it was something that was so vibrant and different. I really liked the color,” Beckham said in an interview reported by Footwear News Wednesday.

LSU shared a video message Beckham sent to the team on Twitter Thursday.

“I sent y'all boys some shoes,” he said in the message. On cue, Ed Orgeron held up one of the yellow sneakers.

Players tweeted to Beckham, thanking him for his gift.
