Jarryd Hayne Receives Custom Steph Curry Shoes

Follow behind-the-scenes shots from the former Australian rugby league star's transition to running back for the San Francisco 49ers.

Jarryd Hayne and Stephen Curry have quite a bit in common these days.

Besides both playing for a Bay Area team, they are one of the most celebrated athletes in their respective country and share a sponsor in Under Armour.

Hayne also likes to pretend he's Curry on the hardwood. A couple weeks ago, the Niners running back posted an Instagram video (see below) of him channeling his inner NBA MVP and draining a shot from beyond the arc.

Now Hayne can be even more like the Golden State Warriors superstar.

The Australian import posted a photo on Wednesday of custom Steph Curry 2s that Under Armour gifted him. The ​kicks​ are fitted with gold Swarovski crystals over the brand's famous UA logo.

We'll keep you posted if Curry returns the favor and rocks Hayne's signature apparel.
